The performance of an intracavity mode-locked and frequency-doubled Nd:YAG laser has been analyzed using a method that takes into account the transverse spatial variation of both the gain and the laser mode. The technique leads to a simple numerical procedure that determines the second harmonic power and pulse width in terms of the parameters that characterize the various spatial distributions.
