Abstract

In this paper, we demonstrated a diode-pumped acousto-optical cavity-dumped Tm:YAP laser for the first time. The pulses were coupled out of the lateral surface of the cavity when radio frequency signal was loaded on the acousto-optical modulator. A maximum output power of 1.28 W was obtained with pump power of 40.3 W at a repetition rate of 200 kHz, corresponding to a slope efficiency of 4.7%. The output pulse width of the cavity-dumped Tm:YAP laser was constant at 43 ns, and the wavelength was 1989.8 nm.
