AbstractA laser apparatus having a pump laser device for producing pump laser energy upon being excited. The pump laser device having a resonating cavity for oscillating and amplifying the pump laser energy. A source laser device is used for producing source laser energy upon being excited by the pump laser energy, the source laser device having a resonating cavity for oscillating and amplifying the source laser energy. The source laser's resonating cavity is coupled within a portion of the pump laser's resonating cavity.
