792nm Laser

A Nd:YLF laser pumped by a CW GaAlAs laser diode(LD) at 792 nm has been designed and fabricated. The output power was investigated as a function of LD spectrum and pump power. A folded laser resonator was desinged to compensate for the astigmatism produced at the Brewster surface of Nd:YLF rod. We obtained output power of CW 1.1 Watt when the pumping power was 2.8 Watt and the output wavelength of LD was temperature tuned to the peak absorption line of Nd:YLF. The overall efficiency was 39% and slope efficiency was 41%.
