The design and performance characteristics of a TEM(00) mode Nd:YLF laser oscillator which can produce over 35 watts CW at 1053 nm are described. Performance data for Q-switched operation and for mode-locked operation are also presented. The performance of the laser was analyzed using a plane-wave extraction model, and the results are presented.
