We propose a technique for pumping Nd:YVO(4) with high optical power at 888nm while making absorption independent of the pump light polarization state. This is especially suitable for systems end pumped by high-power, high-brightness fiber-coupled diode sources associated with long vanadate crystals to effectively spread the heat load in a large volume. A compact 60 W output, 55% optical efficiency cw TEM(00) oscillator was demonstrated.
