Paper Abstract

We present a high compact structure laser diode (LD) side-pumped all-solid-state Q-switched master oscillator power amplifier (MOPA) laser system with high beam quality. Bidirectional voltage-supplied Q-switched and MOPA technologies were introduced in the design. An in-center wavelength of 1064 nm with pulse width adjustability from 5 to 18 ns was obtained at the repetition rate of 500 Hz. Through multistage Nd∶YAG amplifiers at the pulse width of 6 ns, the oscillator was scaled up to 145 W and the corresponding peak power reached 48.3 MW with single pulse energy fluctuation less than 0.45% in 1 h operation.
