Abstract
Advanced resonator technology consisted of uniform pumping and bifocusing-compensation has been developed for rod- geometry laser-diode-pumped Nd:YAG lasers to generate laser power of > 100 W with the beam quality of M2 < 1.2 in cw mode. Experimental results are explained with wave- optics calculations.
