Abstract
As pump sources for Nd:YAG lasers, laser diodes have been shown to have significant advantages over other sources. This paper presents recent advances in the performance of laser diode pumped Nd:YAG lasers. Specific emphasis will be placed on those characteristics which offer unique advantages over conventional (lamp pumped) systems, including: size, weight, efficiency, stability, flexibility, reliability, and life.
