Abstract : An ultraviolet solid slate laser includes: (a) a laser cavity defined by a set of opposing mirrors, (b) a laser medium disposed in this laser cavity where this medium includes a LiSrAlF6 (LiSAF) host material doped with enough cerium ions to produce a longitudinal mode laser emission when this laser medium is pumped; and (c) a source of pumping radiation.
