Paper Abstract

The numerical and experimental investigation of a self- starting Nd:YAG laser oscillator with a cavity completed by population gratings induced in the laser crystal by generating beams themselves are reported. The spatio- temporal characteristics of the laser comprising three Nd:YAG amplifiers and a saturable absorber were investigated. The generation of single mode beam with an average power of as large as 100 W and high quality was achieved.
