Paper Abstract

Conventional methods of solid state laser pumping use the broad spectrum output obtained from flashlamps and it leads to an inefficient system requiring cooling. The use of diode lasers as pump sources offers a potentially huge increase in overall efficiency coupled with the compactness and reliability usually associated with solid state devices. Spectral analysis of the absorption pumping bands for four neodymium doped laser materials was measured. The spectrum of emission radiation of the thermally tunable diode laser was matched for these materials.
