A diode stack end-pumped Nd : Y V O 4 slab laser at 1342 nm with near-diffraction-limited beam quality by using a hybrid resonator was presented. At a pump power of 139.5 W , laser power of 35.4 W was obtained with a conversion efficiency of 25.4% of the laser diode to laser output. The beam quality M 2 factors were measured to be 1.2 in the unstable direction and 1.3 in the stable direction at the output power of 29 W .
