The performance characteristics of a Nd:YAG-Laser cooled by mechanical contact with two transparent high heat conduction solid-state sheets are presented. The size of the slab-crystal was 0.6 cm (height h) x 1.5 cm (width w) x 10 cm (length 1). 300 W average laser power in multimode were generated in free running repetitively pulsed (30 pps) operation; the slope efficiency was 3.3%. Some particular properties applying to this laser for material processing will be mentioned.
