We present a single-longitudinal-mode Ho:Sc2SiO5 (Ho:SSO) laser pumped by a Tm:YAP laser for the first time. Two intra-cavity Fabry–Perot etalons were used to realize the single-longitudinal mode of operation. The maximum output power of 590 mW at 2111.91 nm was obtained with the incident power of 10.2 W, when the slope efficiency was 9.7% and the optical conversion efficiency was 5.8%. The M2 factor of the single longitudinal mode Ho:SSO laser was measured to be 1.17. View Full-Text
