25 September 1989 Properties Of Close-Coupled, Monolithic, Lithium Neodymium Tetraphosphate Lasers

Submillimeter-length, monolithic, Fabry-Perot-cavity lasers were fabricated from the stoichiometric neodymium compound, Lithium Neodymium Tetraphosphate (LNP) and pumped via close-coupling to the output facet of a high-power, diode-laser array. TEM00 output powers in excess of 80 mW near 1047 nm and 26 mW near 1317 nm were obtained at a diode laser power level of 240 mW. Greater than 15 mW of single longitudinal mode output at 1047 nm was also observed.
