The state and development prospects of diode-pumped solid- state Nd:YAG lasers are discussed using the devices developed by polyus RDI and Laser-compact company as examples. Low-power CW and Q-switched IR, green and blue lasers are successfully used for completing medical and industrial devices. The lasers operate in TEM00 mode with stability no worse than 2% per 8h of operation. Pulsed lasers providing a pulse energy of 50 mJ form the basis for a new generation of opto-electronic devices. The problem of stable operation of diode-pumped Nd:YAG laser within a wide operating temperature range is concidered.
