Paper Abstract

Vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers can be processed in large two-dimensional arrays of single devices to scale up the power for solid-state laser pumping. These arrays emit in a circular, uniform beam, with a narrow and stable emission spectrum that is well suited to the absorption spectra of solid-state gain media. kW-class 808 nm QCW VCSEL pump modules were developed to pump compact Nd:YAG lasers. An end-pumped Nd:YAG laser was constructed that produced 7.1 W average IR power, as well as a dual side-pumped passively Q-switched frequency-quadrupled Nd:YAG laser that generated 0.8 mJ UV pulses at a 240 Hz repetition rate.
