Abstract
We present preliminary simulation and experimental results obtained in the frame of QOMA project funded by the European Space Agency (ESA), involving the design and development of a diode-pumped solid state (DPSS) Nd:YAG laser. The simulation results were obtained using the LASCAD software code, while the experimental results were obtained at the Laboratoire Charles Fabry (France) and the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA).
