Paper Abstract

Diode-pumped solid-state laser technology is reviewed with an emphasis on laser materials and concepts important to high power systems with excellent beam quality. A first principal approach to power scaling is taken in order to summarize and compare the wide variety of laser architectures. Successful approaches are highlighted and directions for future work are discussed.
