A stable resonator incorporating a suitably adjusted telescope allows operation of a Nd:YAG laser with a large volume TEMoo mode. The resonator design allows excellent beam quality to be reliably maintained. TEMoo energy in excess of 350 mJ was obtained from a fixed Q laser. Q-switched energies have been kept at ~100 mJ to avoid damage but operation at ~200 mJ appears feasible.
