Paper Abstract

Diode-pumped solid-state lasers with average power output of up to 200 W and peak power to 100 MW have been developed for military and commercial applications. This paper discusses engineering issues related to scaling solid-state lasers to the kW level while maintaining high beam quality, high nonlinear conversion efficiency, and avoiding optical damage.
