About the Journal :
Experimental and Theoretical NANOTECHNOLOGY (ETN) is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed international journal published four issues a year. It includes specialized research papers, short communications, reviews and selected conference papers in special issues on the characterization, synthesis, processing, structure and properties of different principles and applications of NANOTECHNOLOGY; with focus on advantageous achievements and applications for the specialists in engineering, chemistry, physics and materials science.
ETN covers and publishes all aspects of fundamental and applied researches of experimental and theoretical nanoscale technology dealing with materials synthesis, processing, nanofabrication, nanoprobes, spectroscopy, properties, biological systems, nanostructures, nanoelectronics, nano-optics, nano-mechanics, nanodevices, nanobiotechnology, nanomedicine, nanotoxicology within the scope of the journal. ETN aims to acquire the recent and outstanding researches for the benefit of the human being.
In this work describe experimental setup disk laser of Nd:YVO4 in an active mirror configuration, face pumping and cooling by Thermoelectric Cooler (TEC) type heat exchanger to overcome the limitation of the prior design. With (4x5x1mm) disk dimensions to investigate the relationship between the pumping power from a diode laser at (808 nm) with the optical elements in the setup and with the output power. The results show that a (0-600) mW CW output power which indicates 56% efficiency at (1064nm) wavelength from Nd: YVO4 thin disk material when pumped with power between (0-1500) mW from an 808nm CW laser diode.
Keywords: solid-state lasers; Active Mirror; Nd:YVO4 laser; Beam quality; diode laser.
