In this work we present the development of an accousto-optically Q-switched Nd:YAG/KTP based compact laser producing 35 W of average green power at 532 nm under operation at 20 kHz repetition rate with simultaneous side and end-pumping configuration. 19.4% optical to optical conversion efficiency has been obtained. The width of the green pulses at the… CONTINUE READING
