Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We present ultra-efficient conical refraction Nd:KGW laser providing multi-watt output with excellent beam quality independent of resonator design and slope efficiency close to the theoretical maximum, offering the ultimate route for brightness-scaling in solid-state lasers.
