We demonstrate spectral narrowing and selective tuning of the picosecond pulse outputs from an injection-seeded, gain-switched diode laser that is simultaneously coupled to four output fibers with different Bragg-grating resonators. A single-, dual-, and triple-wavelength and temporal pulse operation from all four outputs is presented.

    A novel unstable resonator with a phase-unifying output coupler has been developed. The output coupler structured with a partial-reflection region in its center surrounded by an antireflection region unifies the phases of laser beams passing through these regions. Thus, a near-Gaussian far-field...

    With a special resonator design guaranteeing fundamental-mode operation a single-rod Nd:YAG (4 mm×79 mm) oscillator was realized with an average output power of up to 34 W TEM[sub 00] . The total efficiency was greater than 0.9% and the beam quality was better than 1.2*DL for all realized...
