Q-switched laser behavior of the new IRE RAS developed Yb-Er phosphate glass LGS-KhCh2 was studied using FTIR and water-cooled chamber with lamp pumping. Laser rod near 3 mm in diameter and 80 mm long was investigated. Laser output of 5-10 mJ was achieved at 1535 nm at 20 Hz repetition rate. For the first time, to our best knowledge, the CW operation of the erbium glass laser under lamp pumping is demonstrated.
