Abstract

We investigated the average power limits of diode laser pumped slab lasers and present design calculations for several laser configurations. In the laser designs, a number of diode lasers, each one of which is coupled to an optical fiber are employed to pump a solid state laser material in a zigzag slab or a disk geometry. The systems described here can produce multiple kilowatts of average output power with currently available diode lasers in a cost-effective manner.
