Abstract
A Md:YAG laser using CW room temperature injection lasers as pump sources was constructed, and proved capable of 100 mW polarized output at 1.06 μm when prime power input to the injection laser arrays was 25 W. The potential for stable long-life operation, together with its low power consumption, makes this laser an ideal source for spaceborne applications.
