Paper Abstract

This paper describes the advances in the state of the art solid-state laser technology made by researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and their contractors. Analyses and experiments indicate that a good understanding of the design and implementation of the thermal optical control of laser plates required for high power, high brightness operation is in hand. Significant advances in the strengthening of Nd:glass and the growth of large size, good quality Nd:G:GSGG crystal show that there are at least two ways to increase laser power, brightness and efficiency simultaneously without increasing laser size and weight.
