Abstract

We demonstrate a compact and efficient diode-end-pumped TEM>00 laser with output power of 30 W for 48 W of incident pump power by use of two coated Nd:YVO> 4 crystals to form a thermally stabilized flat–flat cavity. In Q -switched operation 25 W of average power at a pulse-repetition rate of 100 kHz and ∼0.9-mJ pulse energy at a pulse-repetition rate of 10 kHz were produced.
