Abstract

We achieved a 1.3× diffraction-limited output beam with a pulse energy of 0.76 J at 60 Hz (average power of 46 W) at 1.064 μm from a diode-pumped Nd:YAG master oscillator power amplifier rod laser using a diamond-turned aspheric optic to compensate thermally induced phase distortion of the gain medium. The output was frequency doubled in KTP to 30 W (0.5-J pulse energy) and 2.4× diffraction-limited at 532 nm.
