Abstract

A single-crystal Nd:YAG fiber with polished and coated endfaces has been operated as a monolithic, guided-wave laser oscillator. The 47-μm-diameter, 7-mm-length fiber oscillator operated with a threshold of 3.7 mW and a slope laser efficiency of 10.5%. Seventy-five percent of the laser power was in the fundamental spatial mode.
