1. A laser system comprising:

  • an optical pumping chamber;

    a plurality of laser crystals enclosed in said pumping chamber each of which requires a different optimum level of pumping energy for generating a desired mode therein;

    pumping means for optically supplying energy to said pumping chamber at a level which is optimum for a first enclosed laser crystal requiring the highest level of pumping energy; and

    attenuating means disposed within said pumping chamber for selectively limiting the pumping energy supplied to each, except the first, of said laser crystals to a level that is optimum for generating a desired mode therein.
