Abstract : A mode-locked, room temperature, 2-micron laser system was demonstrated with 1% wall plug efficiency. It produced 100 mW average power at 2.063 microns with 10 watts of electrical power to the diode pump. The viability of solid state mode locking at 2 microns was demonstrated. This technology will be continued under the auspices of an AFOSR initiative, workunit 2301EL01. (KAR) P. 3
