Detailed oscillation spectra and polarization properties have been examined in laser-diode-pumped (LD-pumped) microchip ceramic (i.e., polycrystalline) Nd:YAG lasers and the inherent segregation of lasing patterns into local modes possessing different polarization states was observed. Single-frequency linearly-polarized stable oscillations were realized by forcing the laser to Ince-Gaussian mode operations by adjusting azimuthal cavity symmetry.
