In this paper we report on a passively Q-switched core-doped Nd:YAG laser, which is end-pumped by a laser diode stack. To suppress ASE and especially parasitic ring modes the cladding consists of Sm:YAG, which is transparent at the pump wavelength of 808 nm and absorbs at the laser wavelength of 1064 nm.
