    Abstract

    We demonstrate a continuous-wave Pr 3+ :YLF laser pumped by blue laser diodes, and obtain the output power of 6.7 and 3.7 W at 640 and 607 nm, respectively. The Pr 3+ :YLF laser is extended to passive Q-switching by utilizing a Co 2+ : MgAl 2 O 4 spinel saturable absorber and its intracavity second harmonic generation at DUV.
