Abstract
The construction and operation of a diode-pumped Nd:YLF monolithic mini-laser operating at 1.053 μm is described along with its application of injection seeding a CW flashlamp pumped Nd:YLF Q-switched oscillator to produce single frequency pulses. Alignment of the mini-laser axis to the "c" axis of the Nd:YLF crystal allows lasing at 1.053 μm in a monolithic configuration. The Q-switched oscillator when seeded produces single frequency pulses 90% of the time.
