Paper Abstract

We demonstrated a efficient 532-nm microchip laser with a conventional schematic pumped by a single-mode laser diode through a ball lens. An output power as high as 18.7 mW has been achieved for a 121-mW pumping power of the laser diode. We also investigated the temporal dynamic characteristic of the laser by numerically solving a set of rate equations.
