Abstract

Continuous-wave laser action using F+ centers in CaO crystals is reported in the blue range of the visible spectrum. These centers may be pumped by using either Ar+ or N2 laser lines. The laser is tunable in the range 357–420 nm with an output power of ≃ 15 mW at the band center for an input power of 100 mW.
