AbstractOutput powers as high as 300mW were obtained at 1925nm in the cw regime with a Tm laser operating at room temperature, either with Ti-sapphire or diode laser pumping, using a new single crystal of NaGd(WO4)2 grown by the Czochralski method and doped with 5mol.% of Tm3+ in the melt. This crystal belongs to the I4¯ tetragonal space group and exhibits a locally disordered structure due to the random occupancy of the same lattice sites by Na and Gd (or Tm) ions. The local disorder results in large bandwidths of the Tm3+ optical transitions (e.g., FWHM≈60cm−1 at 5K for the H63-->F43 transition involved in the laser emission), which allows one to obtain one of the broadest laser tunability ranges, from 1813 to 2025nm(≈17THz), achieved with a Tm3+-doped crystalline material. A detailed characterization of the Tm3+ optical spectroscopy in this novel host was performed at 5 and 300K.
