Abstract

Power-scaling the 946nm Nd:YAG laser via cryogenically-cooling the gain media is explored. Critical spectroscopic data are determined for 0.3at.% and 0.6at.% doping levels, providing a foundation for designing these lasers. As a result, the first 60W in-band end-pumped cryo-cooled 946nm laser with 52% efficiency (versus absorbed power) is reported.
