Title: Three-level Q -switched laser operation of ytterbium-doped Sr5 (PO4)3F at 985 nm

Abstract

Ytterbium-doped Sr{sub 5}( PO{sub 4}){sub 3}F was successfully lased at 985 nm in quasi-cw mode with a slope efficiency of 74% and an absorbed threshold energy of 18 mJ. Q -switched slope efficiencies of 21% were obtained with a maximum energy of 9.4 mJ in 8.8-ns pulses. (c)
