Paper Abstract

A diode-laser side-pumped E-O Q-switched TEM00 Nd:YAG slab laser that uses a large N.A. cylindrical lens and a thin slab pumping geometry has been investigated. The pumping scheme has the ability to match well the pump beam to the laser's fundamental transverse mode in two axes. Approximately 1.1 times diffraction limited laser beam is obtained. The slope efficiency is 31% and 18.9% at long-pump and Q-switched operation, respectively.
