Abstract

Spectroscopic and laser properties of a newly developed high optical quality Er:CaF2 hot-formed ceramic were investigated. Under pulsed 968 nm laser diode pumping, the mid-infrared (2.7 μm) radiation was obtained with a slope efficiency of 3%. Laser tunability was reached using a birefringent filter and the laser tuning range of 118 nm, from 2687 up to 2805 nm, was demonstrated. The maximal output energy reached was 0.48 mJ at 2730 nm for the absorbed pumping energy 34 mJ.
