Abstract We demonstrate a continuous-wave (cw) and actively Q-switched Er : YAG ceramic laser resonantly dual-end-pumped by a 1532 nm fibre-coupled laser diode. A maximum cw output power of 1.48 W at 1645.3 nm is obtained at an absorbed pump power of 12.72 W, corresponding to a slope efficiency of 19.2%. In the Q-switched regime the maximum pulse energy of 0.84 mJ is reached at a pulse repetition rate of 100 Hz, pulse duration of 48.03 ns and absorbed pump power of 10.51 W. (lasers)
