We previously have reported CW laser oscillation at both 1.064-μm(1) and 1.3-μm(2) wavelengths in single-crystal Nd:YAG fiber lasers end-pumped with a single light-emitting diode, utilizing externally mounted and adjustable mirrors in a temporary laboratory set-up. We report here the first demonstration of an operating, portable, self-contained, LED- pumped Nd:YAG fiber laser.
