Abstract

A diode stack end-pumped Nd:YVO4 slab laser at 1342nm with near-diffraction-limited beam quality by using a hybrid resonator was presented. At a pump power of 139.5W, laser power of 35.4W was obtained with a conversion efficiency of 25.4% of the laser diode to laser output. The beam quality M2 factors were measured to be 1.2 in the unstable direction and 1.3 in the stable direction at the output power of 29W.
