Abstract
A difference was observed in gain coefficient between 'p' and 's' polarized light in a zigzag Nd:YAG slab pumped by a polarized laser diode array, indicating site selective excitation. The type of dipole involved in emission at 1064 nm seems to be predominantly (sigma) , although the ideal site symmetry is too low and no dipole axis is forbidden. These observations are consistent with others that show polarized site selection effects in Nd:YAG.
