Yb:YAG and Nd:YAG edge-pumped slab lasers

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

Experimental demonstrations of two edge-pumped zigzag slab lasers are presented. The Nd:YAG slab laser generated 127 W of multimode output power with 300 W of pump power. Preliminary results with a Yb:YAG slab produced 46 W of output power with 315 W of pump power. The edge-pumped slab design permits symmetric conduction cooling and efficient pump absorption and accepts large-numerical-aperture pump sources.
