Abstract

A diode-pumped tunable CW Nd 3 + : LGS laser at quasi-three-level has been demonstrated. The output power up to 403 mW at the central wavelength of 904 nm was obtained, corresponding to a slope efficiency of 29.7%. Taking advantage of the broad emission spectrum of the disordered crystal Nd:LGS, we tuned the laser wavelength within the spectral range of 899.8 to 906.6 nm with an etalon inserted into the V-type cavity. To the best of our knowledge, it is the first time to obtain a tunable laser based on the F 3 / 2 4 - I 9 / 2 4 transition of Nd 3 + -doped crystals.
