Abstract
A compact continuous-wave and actively Q-switched Ho : LuVO4 laser pumped by a 1.94  μm Tm:YAP laser is demonstrated. The maximum output power of 6.7 W at 2058.13 nm in continuous-wave regime is obtained at an absorbed pump power of 17.8 W, corresponding to a slope efficiency of 48.4%. For Q-switched operation, average output power of 6.65 W and pulse width of 22.3 ns are obtained with a repetition frequency of 20 kHz, corresponding to a central wavelength of 2058.13 nm. In addition, different Q-switched pulses at repetition frequencies of 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60 kHz are investigated comparatively.
