Longitudinally diode-pumped Nd:YAG double-clad planar waveguide laser

By J.I. Mackenzie, C. Li, D.P. Shepherd, H.E. Meissner and S.C. Mitchell


We report the demonstration of a near-diffraction-limited, compact, diode-end-pumped double-clad planar waveguide Nd:YAG laser. Efficient laser operation was achieved for the three dominant Nd3+ transitions at 1.064µm 0.946µm, and 1.32µm, with TE polarised output powers of 1.33W, 0.57W, and 0.33W for the available output couplers. The output beam from the monolithic plane-plane laser cavity had measured M2 values of 1.0 and 1.8, perpendicular and parallel to the plane of the waveguide respectively
