Efficient cw end-pumped, end-cooled Nd:YVO(4) diode-pumped laser.

Abstract

Using a novel end-pumped, end-cooled geometry, we demonstrated a Nd:YVO(4) cw laser that produces close to 2 W of single-mode output when pumped by a high-brightness 100-mum-core diode fiber source. An optical-optical conversion efficiency of 49% was obtained. Beam quality was found to be nearly diffraction-limited (M(2) = 1.08) and independent of pumping power.
