Paper Abstract

Design and projected performance of a lightweight, 1064 nm, laser transmitter is described. A 40 mJ, diode side-pumped Nd:YAG zig-zag slab oscillator is configured to operate on either of two Nd:YAG absorption bands (795 nm or 807 nm) to provide stable operation over a 100°C temperature range, using minimal power for diode wavelength stabilization.
