Abstract:

Room-temperature operation of a solid-state laser has been achieved for the first time in the blue region using PrYLF. The 0.2 PrYLF crystal was longitudinally pumped at 444 nm using a pulsed dye laser. Laser emission was observed at 479 nm and required a pump-energy density of 8 Jsq cm at threshold.
