Paper Abstract

We have constructed a laser utilizing five 10 W cw diode bars to transverse-pump a Tm:YAG rod in a multiple-pass pump cavity. At an estimated rod temperature of 35 - 40 degree(s)C, 6.0 W of multi-mode and 3.8 W of single-mode output were obtained at 2.02 micrometers in a non- optimized resonator with 50 W incident pump power.
