Abstract

An actively stabilised, continuous-wave, 1.94 mum Tm:YAlO laser is presented. Optoelectronic negative feedback stabilisation is utilised to prevent relaxation-oscillation-driven spiking. The amplitude stability of the laser is found to be very robust against cavity perturbation and parasitic radiation back-reflection, making it attractive for practical applications.
