Abstract : An experimental Neodymium YAG laser system has been constructed using a cylindrical pumping reflector containing three CW tungsten-halide lamps. Maximum laser output of 2.05 watts has been obtained with slope efficiency 0.19 percent at 3300 watts input power. Slope efficiency increased with increasing input power, and output power decreased with increasing resonator length. (Author)
