McDonnell Douglas Electronic Systems Company (MDESC) approach to developing 1.5X micron lasers have been to either diode pump Er:Glass or to use Nd hosts to pump optical parametric oscillators (OPOs). A 1.57 micron Optical Parametric Oscillator (OPO) from a multimode 1064 nm Nd:YAG slab laser has been demonstrated. Using KTP as the nonlinear crystal, 39 mJ of 1.57 micron has been achieved with 1064 nm pump input of 200 mJ. The system had a wall plug efficiency > 1%.
