Abstract

We have demonstrated high-order Hermite–Gaussian (HG) mode generation based on 2D gain distribution control edge-pumped, composite all-ceramic Yb:YAG/YAG microchip lasers using a V-type cavity. Several hundred milliwatts to several watts HGmn modes are achieved. We also generated different kinds of vortex arrays directly from the oscillator with the same power level. In addition, a more than 7 W doughnut-shape mode can be generated in the same cavity.
