Diode and fibre pumped Cr2+:ZnS mid-infrared external cavity and microchip lasers

Academic Article


  • Demonstrations of CW and pulsed microchip lasing in Cr2+:ZnS and Cr2+:ZnSe crystals are reported. Slope efficiencies up to 53% with output power up to 150 mW for CW and energy up to 1 mJ for pulsed pumping were achieved. Two compact diode and Er fibre laser directly pumped external cavity Cr2+: ZnS lasers are also described.
