Wavelength and ouput of Nd YAG laser

Nd YAG laser has wavelength of about 10600 angstrom, that is in infrared region of spectrum. Nd YAG lasers may be operated in either a pulse mode or a continuous mode. The output powers for continuous wave mode range from 0.1 watts to 100 watts. The peak power for the pulse mode can range from tens or hundreds of kilowatts with a pulse lasting milliseconds. The pulse will last for 10-20 nanoseconds for a peak power of hundred megawatts.
