Sapphire fibers doped with 0.05 atomic % trivalent titanium were made by the laser-heated pedestal growth method with diameters from 500 to 1000-μm. The fibers were used as gain media in a tunable laser oscillator. They were end pumped by 532-nm frequency-doubled Nd:YAG radiation and produced up to 2-mJ in 4-ns pulses at 1-Hz with 1-nm linewidth from 790 to 840 nrn.
