Abstract
Experimental and theoretical modeling results for pulsed diode-array end-pumped Nd:YAG laser with aberrational thermolens are presented. Millijoule level energy stable picosecond pulse generation is realized in a wide range of repetition rates. Limiting factors of stable laser operation and quantitative contribution of aberrations in beam quality degradation are discussed.
