Abstract

A new cavity configured from commercially available parts including a harmonic mode locker has yielded stable 60-ps pulses and an average power of 14 W. Powers of up to 20 W are readily attained at the expense of pulse width. These are the largest peak powers yet reported for a single-lamp cw-pumped Nd:YAG laser.
