Abstract : One object of the invention is to produce a room-temperature, CW laser emission continuously tunable over the spectral range of 1.86 to 2.14 microns. Another object of the invention is to provide a compact, economical, laser-pumped, solid state laser for producing a CW laser emission tunable over the spectral range of substantially 1.86 to 2.14 microns. Another object of the invention is to provide a room-temperature, laser-pumped, thulium-doped, solid state laser for producing a CW laser emission tunable over the spectral range of 1.86 to 2.14 microns and method for operating same. Another object of the invention is to provide a room-temperature, laser diode-pumped, thulium-doped, solid state laser for producing a CW laser emission tunable over the spectral range of 1.86 to 2.14 microns. Keywords: Patent applications. (jhd)
