Abstract
Glass laser is the best one to radiate high-average power used for material processing and X- ray production. However, the thermal conductivity of laser glass is very low compared with other laser crystals. We report newly developed glass slab laser operating at 8 Hz without laser glass breakage, the geometrical shape of the glass slab is different from conventional ones. Our glass slab is composed of small square glasses. Slab laser (10t mm X 40w mm X 125l mm) at pumping power of 1500 W emitted the average output power of 46 W.
