Abstract

We demonstrated a 2097 nm Ho:YAG ceramic master oscillator and power amplifier system pumped by Tm:YLF lasers. Laser characteristics of 0.6 at.% and 0.4 at.% Ho:YAG ceramics were studied in CW and Q-switched modes. An output energy of 20.6 mJ at a pulse repetition frequency of 200 Hz was achieved from the master oscillator. The pulse energy was amplified to 34 mJ by the Ho:YAG ceramic amplifier with a pulse duration of 54 ns.
