Abstract
We report on diode-end-pumped a-cut Nd:YLF laser on 4F3/24I11/2 transition. In a free-running regime, using an output coupler with a radius of curvature of 1000 mm, we obtain dual-wavelength laser operation at both π-polarized 1047 nm and σ-polarized 1053 nm with maximum output power of about 1.25 W and the highest slope efficiency of about 50.9% at pump power of 5.77 W at room temperature, for the first time to our knowledge. Furthermore, using a 0.1-mm glass plate as a wavelength selector, a dual-wavelength laser at 1047 and 1072 nm can also be yielded with the maximum output power of 0.34 W, which has not been reported before.
