Abstract
We have developed a highly efficient Nd:YLF oscillator- amplifier operating at 10 Hz. The design of both the oscillator and amplifier is based on conduction-cooled QCW diode bar stacks and a total internal reflection pumping geometry. The oscillator is designed as a gain guided confocal unstable resonator. Maximum electrical to optical efficiencies of 8.3% and 8.8% are demonstrated in the oscillator and amplifier, respectively.
