Paper Abstract

A new simple, compact, and efficient optical device is presented which allows any commercially available laser diode arrays or stacks to longitudinally pump laser materials. A Nd:YVO4 laser was built and an optical-optical efficiency as high as 50% was demonstrated with a diffraction limited output beam.
