Abstract

We report a room-temperature single-frequency Tm : Li Lu F 4 laser with a maximum output power of 120 mW , a slope efficiency of 13%, and a wavelength tunability range from 1875 to 1895 nm . Both frequency and relative intensity noise have been investigated, showing an emission linewidth of 300 kHz over 1 ms observation time and an intensity noise spectrum limited by quantum noise for Fourier frequencies larger than 5 MHz .
