Abstract
A high-brightness component is used to longitudinally pump Nd:YAG and Nd:YVO4 crystals. The light is focused by a simple, compact and efficient nonimaging concentrator. A 50% at 1.064 micrometer and a 25% at 0.532 micrometer optical-optical efficiencies were demonstrated with a near TEM00 beam.
