Paper Abstract

We describe our investigations of a CW diode pumped solid state laser based on two Nd:YAG active elements provided with original unstable resonator. Two diffraction limited output beam divergence has been achieved. The laser radiation power of the resonator proposed has been obtained of 40% below but with the 30 times greater on-axis intensity as compared to the ordinary used resonator in a commercial laser of a similar type.
