Abstract
We report on free-running operation in a side-pumped Yb:YAG slab laser. For maximum available pump pulse energy of 850 mJ at 967.7 nm delivered by a 2D laser diode stack with fast-axis-collimation, the output pulses with energy of 150 mJ at 1.03 μm were obtained. The laser system operated in room temperature providing a slope efficiency of 26.9%. The performance of the laser is described.
