The viability of high-power and high-energy, direct eyesafe emission from bulk erbium lasers has recently been demonstrated. In this paper, we present a review of eyesafe erbium lasers that are resonantly pumped by both fiber and diode lasers. High brightness pumping with a 1.53-μm erbium fiber laser has yielded 60 W of continuous wave (CW) output, 10 W of repetitively Q-switched output, and as much as 16 mJ of pulse energy. Diode laser pumping has yielded 38 W of quasi-CW output and >40 mJ of Q-switched output.
