Paper Abstract

We report on the results of our diode pumped alkali laser experiments. Using volume bragg gratings, we have produced a 1.28 kW diode stack with a 0.35 nm bandwidth and ~70% of the power contained in the peak. We use two of these stacks to pump a 23 mm rubidium cell. We achieve 29 W of average output power at a 14% duty factor.
