Abstract:

A laser master oscillator and a laser power amplifier are described which utilize different lasing substances such as a semiconductor diode injection laser as the master oscillator and either a solid state or gas laser as the amplifier. A preferred embodiment utilizes an indium gallium arsenide laser diode and a neodymium solid state laser amplifier. The latter may be optically pumped with either a flash lamp or pulsed light emitting or laser diodes, the latter configuration resulting in an all solid state optical source. Author
