Abstract

We demonstrate a high average power approximately 4 ps output from a phase conjugate laser system based on a diode-side-pumped Nd:Gd(0.6)Y(0.4)VO(4) bounce amplifier. An average output power of 16.2 W with a peak power of 210 kW was achieved. A corresponding extraction efficiency of 23% was measured.
