Abstract

Nd:YAG (YAG) and Nd:Lu:YAG (LYAG) are investigated as high-efficiency laser materials utilizing a diode-array side-pump geometry. We demonstrate higher laser efficiencies than previously reported for transversely pumped YAG. A YAG rod yielded an optical slope efficiency of 47.7%, while a LYAG rod yielded an optical slope efficiency of 50.3%. Increased performance of these materials is attributed to higher pump absorption and lower losses.
