High power diode-bar-end-pumped Nd:YLF laser at 1.053µm

High power diode-bar-end-pumped Nd:YLF laser at 1.053µm
High power diode-bar-end-pumped Nd:YLF laser at 1.053µm
We describe efficient cw operation of a Nd:YLF laser on the 1.053µm transition, end-pumped by two beam-shaped 20W diode bars. Fundamental-transverse mode operation with output power of 11.1W for ~29.5W of incident pump power has been demonstrated. In Q-switched operation 8.4W of average power at a pulse repetition frequency of 40kHz and ~2.6mJ pulse energy at pulse repetition frequency of 1kHz were achieved.

Abstract

We describe efficient cw operation of a Nd:YLF laser on the 1.053µm transition, end-pumped by two beam-shaped 20W diode bars. Fundamental-transverse mode operation with output power of 11.1W for ~29.5W of incident pump power has been demonstrated. In Q-switched operation 8.4W of average power at a pulse repetition frequency of 40kHz and ~2.6mJ pulse energy at pulse repetition frequency of 1kHz were achieved.
