Abstract

We demonstrate a monolithic double diffusion-bonded monolithic Tm:YAG nonplanar ring laser pumped by a fiber-coupled laser diode. Up to 867 mW single-frequency output at 2.01 μ m was obtained from the Tm:YAG system at room temperature, with a slope efficiency and an optical–optical efficiency of 31.6% and 19.2%. The power stability of the single frequency laser was 0.32% within 30 min .
