Paper Abstract

Heat generation and laser performance were studied in Nd:YAG oscillators pumped with a Ti:Sapphire laser in two regimes: band pumping at 802nm and direct pumping at 885nm. Slope efficiencies of 52% and 57%, when pumped at 802nm and 885nm, were obtained, respectively. Heat per unit laser output was found to be 27% lower when pumped at 885nm (direct pumping regime) as compared to traditional band pumping around 808nm.
