Abstract

We report on a Q-switched Ho:Lu2O3 laser resonantly pumped by a GaSb-based laser diode stack at 1.9 μm. The maximum output energy extracted from the compact plano–plano acousto-optically Q-switched resonator was 8 mJ at a 100 Hz pulse repetition rate, while the peak power was 40 kW. The laser wavelength was 2.124 μm.
