Description/Abstract

We report the operation of a Nd glass laser pumped by a 500 mW broad single stripe laser diode. We have observed a slope efficiency of greater than 30% and an output power of greater than 100 mW when pumping with one diode The output power increased to greater than 150 mW when two such diodes were used to pump the laser.
