Paper Abstract

A moving slab geometry Nd:Glass laser is capable of operating at much beyond the thermal stress fracture limit for a conventional fixed slab laser. Average power output of 43.8 W input power and at 2.06% slope efficiency in the first prototype. The moving slab laser has the potential for scaling to kilowatt average power levels.
