Description/Abstract

A Nd:YAG laser having a ring configuration, with Faraday rotator to provide unidirectional operation has been end-pumped by a single 20 W diode bar equipped with a beam-shaper. A single-frequency TEMoo output of 5.4 W is achieved at 1064 nm. Using a thin intracavity etalon for wavelength selection, a single-frequency output of 4.2 W is obtained on the 1061.4 nm transition
