Experiments on a high-power end-pumped Nd:YAG rod laser with an efficient birefringence compensation will be presented. A linearly polarized output power of 114 W with an M2-value of 1.05 was realized. Furthermore, the from our best knowledge highest injection-locked singlefrequency output power of 87 W in a nearly diffraction-limited beam was demonstrated.
