Abstract

We describe efficient cw operation of a Nd:YLF laser end pumped by two beam-shaped 20-W diode bars on the 1.053?µm transition. Fundamental transverse-mode operation with output power of 11.1??W for ?29.5??W of incident pump power was demonstrated. In Q-switched operation 8.4??W of average power at a pulse repetition frequency of 40??kHz and ?2.6?mJ pulse energy at a pulse repetition frequency of 1??kHz were achieved.
