Continuous wave laser oscillation of the stoichiometric microchip YbAG crystal was realized at 1076 nm wavelength. The 200-μm-thick YbAG crystal was pumped by the Ti:sapphire laser at 937 nm. Maximum output power of 100 mW was obtained at room temperature with slope efficiency of 38% and maximum optical-to-optical efficiency of 29% for the incident pump power.
