Abstract

First operation of the 4F₉/₂ → 6H₁₃/₂ laser transition in dysprosium doped yttrium aluminum garnet is reported. Efficient room temperature operation at 583 nm was obtained using 447 nm GaN diode lasers pumps. Gaussian single-mode operation was demonstrated with a non-optimized slope efficiency of 12%. Millisecond pulsed operation generated 150 mW with power limited by the pump diodes' brightness.
