We present a novel design for an efficient, high power (>100 W), continuous-wave (CW) Nd:YAG laser with diffraction-limited performance. It uses side-pumped, sidecooled, zigzag slab which is incorporated in a stable-unstable resonator that has a variable reflectivity output coupler. A geometric magnification of at least 1.3 in the unstable direction can be achieved. Modeled performance characteristics are presented
