Paper Abstract

We have developed a kind of compact diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) lasers targeting laser cleaning applications in railway, automobile and aeroplane industries. Based on a master oscillate power amplifier (MOPA) configuration, the laser output is coupled to optical fibers with core diameters of 0.2-0.4 mm depending on the output power. The master oscillator is an actively Q-switched Nd:YAG laser in a thermal insensitive cavity for good beam quality at high average power. The laser repetition rate is adjustable in 1-10 kHz. At a typical 8 kHz, we obtained pulse energy ~50 mJ, pulse width ~50 ns, peak power ~0.8 MW and M2~22, which can satisfy the requirements of most industrial laser cleaning and take advantage over commercial fiber lasers with similar output powers in terms of processing efficiency and machineable materials. The increase of either pump power or repetition rate can elevate average laser output power up to 1 kW.
