A laser-diode-pumped master oscillator and power amplifier was developed with high efficiency, high average power and high beam quality. The oscillator is an injection-seeding, fiber coupled diode-end-pumped E-O Q-switched Nd:YAG laser, producing single frequency pulse laser output with pulse energy of 8mJ and pulse width of 11ns at a pulse repetition rate of 1KHz,The 1KHz was divided into four chains with frequency of 250Hz, through E-O modulation technology, The power amplifier utilizes conductively-cooling Nd:YAG zigzag slab with two sides’ pump architecture at bounce point. Pulse energy of more than 800mJ with pulse widths of 12.6ns was obtained at repetition rate of 250Hz in every amplifier chain, the frequency-doubled pulse energy of 360mJ when KTP crystal was used was obtained at a repetition of 250Hz.
