Paper Abstract

A compact UV pulsed laser pumped by high-power two-dimensional arrays of vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) was presented. A passively Q-switched 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser was side-pumped by kW-class 808-nm VCSEL pump modules and the output pulses were frequency quadrupled to 266-nm. 10-ns, 0.68-mJ UV pulsed output was obtained at 1.33k-Hz repetition rate. The average UV power is < 0.9-W. This VCSEL pumped high power UV laser source provides a reliable, low-cost and low-profile solution for military and commercial applications including remote sensing, laser processing and spectroscopy.
