A 6.3 mm diameter by 15 mm long a-axis Nd:YLiF4 (YLF) laser rod was side-pumped by a 475 W GaAlAs diode array. A 42.9 percent optical slope efficiency was achieved while pumping in a region of low absorption in the 2H9/2, 4F5/2 band at 806 nm. Findlay-clay loss analysis and pump absorption profiles are discussed.
