Er3+:YAG crystal is an attractive laser material for eye-safe emission at wavelengths of 1617 and 1645 nm which can be resonantly diode-pumped into the upper laser manifold at 1470 nm and 1532 nm. Due to the low quantum defect, high slope efficiencies of >80% can be achieved with direct fiber laser or InGaAs/InP pumping. By using heavily erbium-doped (~50 at.%) YAG crystal efficient CW laser operation at ~3 µm can be obtained.
CW and Q-switched eye-safe (~1,6 μm) in-band pumped lasers with nearly quantum defect limited efficiency for military applications including LIDAR, telemetry, or active imaging.
Channel waveguide eye-safe (~1,6 µm) in-band pumped lasers with diffraction-limited output for long-distance telemetry and ranging.
CW and Q-switched ~3 µm lasers for oral surgery, dentistry, implant dentistry, and otolaryngology.
Isotropic crystal (cubic symmetry).
High thermal conductivity.
Strong absorption bandwidth near 1470 nm corresponding to InGaAsP/InP laser diode emission.
Emission spectra at 1617 nm is free from absorption in the atmosphere.
