Paper Abstract

Microchip lasers are used as pulse generators in the LMJ front end. These lasers are made with Nd:YLF using collective fabrication processes. A linearly polarized, single-frequency, 1053 nm emission has been achieved with very good efficiency. The beam of the microchip lasers has been coupled into a polarization-maintaining single mode fiber using microlenses, with coupling efficiencies better than 70%.
