Resonator design considerations for high-power TEMoo operation of a Nd:YAG laser at 1.3Ám end-pumped by a diode-bar

M.A.Kern, W.A.Clarkson and D.C.Hanna


Using a novel resonator approach which reduces the beam distortion resulting from strong thermally-induced aberrations, we have obtained ~3.2W of TEM00 output at 1.3μm from a Nd:YAG laser end-pumped by a 20W diode-bar.
