A novel method of generating 1.634-μm laser action from Er:YAG crystals pumped intracavity by an Er:glass laser emitting at 1.549 μm is described. Operation of the Er:glass laser at 1.549 μm (red shifted from the standard 1.532 μm, but with comparable output) at 500 K was obtained using mirrors with tailored spectral reflectivities. Several Er:YAG crystals ranging in concentration from 0.3% to 2% and in length from 1 cm to 8 cm were lased in the intracavity pumping arrangement. All the Er:YAG crystals lased in the 4I13/2 :Y1(6544 cm-1)-4I15/2:Z6(424 cm -1) 1.634-μm transition at 300 K
