    First results on a diode-pumped Er3+:YAG solid-state heat-capacity laser (SSHCL) are reported. The laser achieves an output power of >70 W and could be operated for >2 s, currently limited by the available pump power with respect to the temperature dependent threshold. The experimental results...
