Abstract: We reported a detailed investigation of a low-power diode-pumped Nd:BaY/sub 2/F/sub 8/. Here we summarize the results of a nearly 10-fold power-scaled Nd:BaY/sub 2/F/sub 8/ pumped by a 12-W fiber-coupled diode array. In conclusions, Nd:BaY/sub 2/F/sub 8/ seems a promising material for high-power diode-pumped lasers, specially for applications requiring thermally-insensitive resonator performances, such as cw intracavity doubling, where thermal diffractive losses must be also carefully controlled.
