Many of the characteristics of solid-state lasers depend to a large extent upon the quality of the individual laser rod and its optical properties in the presence of pumping raidation. This paper su-marizes the input-output properties of typical neodium-YAG rods used in (moderate power, tungsten-pumped, continuous lasers operating at 1.0641 nicrons and 1.32 microns. A sinple method of determining the optimum reflectivity of the output mirror is described, and output-versus-reflectivity curves are given for a number of laser rods. Several features of the spectrum, polarization, and mode structure of the laser are related to the optical properties of the pumped laser rod.
