Paper Abstract

The design and operation of a laser diode-pumped Nd:YAG ring laser are described. This laser is shown to be capable of efficient generation of both the fundamental and second harmonic frequencies, and can operate either CW or Q-switched. The single frequency power obtained was 542 mW at the fundamental and 19 mW at 532 nm. Q-switched operation produced 22.4 micro-J per pulse at 5 kHz in the fundamental and 7.3 micro-J per pulse at 532 nm.
