High-power single-frequency operation, at 1064nm and 1061.4nm of a Nd:YAG ring laser end-pumped by a beam-shaped diode bar

By K.I. Martin, W.A. Clarkson and D.C. Hanna

Abstract

A Nd:YAG laser having a ring configuration, with Faraday rotator to provide unidirectional operation has been end-pumped by a single 20 W diode bar equipped with a beam-shaper. A single-frequency TEMoo output of 5.4 W is achieved at 1064 nm. Using a thin intracavity etalon for wavelength selection, a single-frequency output of 4.2 W is obtained on the 1061.4 nm transitio
