Abstract

By use of CW diode laser stacked arrays, side-pumping Q-switched composite ceramic Nd:YAG rod laser based on a type II KTP crystal intracavity frequency-doubled, a high power high stability green laser has been demonstrated. Average output power of 104 W is obtained at a repetition rate of 10.6kHz with a diode-to-green optical conversion efficiency of 10.9%. For the average output power of about 100 W, the measured pulse width is 132 ns with power fluctuation of less than 0.2%. The experimental results show that the green laser system using this novel ceramic Nd:YAG offers better laser performance and output stability than the traditional single Nd:YAG crystal green laser system with the same operating conditions and experimental configuration.
