Paper Abstract

High power diode pumped solid state lasers are attractive sources for various applications in material processing. One of the advantages of diode pumping of solid state lasers is the higher brilliance (maximum output power/poorest beam parameter product using equal plan-plane resonators) compared to arc lamp pumped solid state lasers.
