Abstract

A self-organizing laser based on a single diode-pumped Nd:YAG slab with reciprocal cavity completed by dynamic holographic gratings was created. The temporal dynamics, frequency spectrum and spatial characteristics of the generated beam were examined. A single-transverse-mode beam with up to 10 mJ pulse energy and 15% optical-to-optical efficiency was generated.
