Abstract
Acousto-optically Q-switched operation of a Ho:SSO laser is reported for the first time. An average power of 2.23 W was obtained at a pulse repetition frequency from 5 to 20 kHz, with a corresponding to optical-to-optical conversion efficiency of 14.4% and a slope efficiency of 20%. The highest energy per pulse of 0.44 mJ in 28 ns was achieved at 2112 nm with a repetition rate of 5 kHz and peak power of 15 kW. The lifetime of Ho3+ in the Sc2SiO5 crystal host was also measured.
