Abstract : A neodymium laser was constructed with a locally designed circular cylindrical pumping cavity. Laser action was achieved under conditions predicted. A Nd:YAG crystal was selected for use in the laser, and the physical and chemical properties of Nd:YAG as compiled from the literature are presented. The theoretical and experimental approach for designing the Nd:YAG laser system, and a detailed description of the laser system are given, with the expected operational characteristics extrapolated from measurements on a commercial laser.
