Switchable dual wavelength solid state laser

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #8416832.

The present invention relates to a switchable dual wavelength solid state laser with a solid state gain medium (1) which is selected to emit optical radiation at a first wavelength with a first polarization and of at least a second wavelength with a second polarization different from said first polarization when optically or electrically pumped. A polarizing device (7) is arranged within the laser cavity, said polarizing device (7) being adjustable at least between said first and said second polarization. The two end mirrors (2, 3) of the laser cavity are designed to allow lasing of the solid state laser at the first wavelength when the polarizing device (7) is adjusted to the first polarization, and to allow lasing of the solid state laser at the second wavelength when the polarizing device (7) is adjusted to the second polarization. The proposed solid state laser allows an easy switching between two emission wavelengths.
