Paper Abstract

A cw diode-pumped Nd:YVO4 laser system was developed which is capable of delivering 10 W of average power at high repetition rates of more than 20 kHz. Longitudinally fiber- and simultaneous side-pumping is used for a compact, electrooptically Q-switched laser oscillator producing stable pulses with widths ranging from 5 to 15 ns, and a nearly Gaussian beam profile. The radiation of the oscillator is efficiently amplified by a small, longitudinally fiber- pumped double-pass amplifier.
