The system is shown to produce more than a 7W output in a TEM00 single longitudinal mode with a laser beam propagation parameter M2 of 1.3 and 1.1 in the x and y axes, respectively. We demonstrate the self-adaptive abilities of the resonator by spatial correction of an intracavity aberrator for both injected and self-starting versions of the cavity.

Abstract

We present, for what we believe is the first time, results of continuous-wave diode-pumping of a Nd:YVO4 laser with an adaptive gain-grating resonator. The system is shown to produce more than a 7W output in a TEM00 single longitudinal mode with a laser beam propagation parameter M2 of 1.3 and 1.1 in the x and y axes, respectively. We demonstrate the self-adaptive abilities of the resonator by spatial correction of an intracavity aberrator for both injected and self-starting versions of the cavity.
