Abstract

The use of single doped Ho:YAG crystals by pumping directly into the upper laser manifold with a diode-pumped Tm:YLF or Tm:YVO4 was discussed. The upper limit on output power was limited by thermal effects in Tm-doped fiber laser as the pump laser. Cladding-pumped fiber lasers were relatively immune from thermal effects and offered the potential for scaling to very high powers without degradation in beam quality. It combination of high power, high brightness and flexibility in operating wavelength suggested that cladding pumped Tm doped fiber lasers were ideal sources for many Tm and Ho doped crystal lasers.
