Laser decontamination system is able to decontaminate thoroughly, and it is able to mitigate the secondary waste quantity, and the system is able to operate by remote control. It is advantageously method compared with other decontamination methods. Irradiation by YAG laser beam is competent for decontamination of stainless steel surface. In this paper, using normal and Q switch pulse YAG laser, Experiments to confirm transmission efficiency using mirror and optical fiber, shape dependency at decontamination, and secondary waste size distribution were performed. The results of the work are as follows. (1) The beam energy of normal pulse YAG laser is able to transmit using optical fiber. The beam energy of Q switch pulse YAG laser is difficult to transmit using a single optical fiber. (2) Normal pulse YAG laser has 10$$^{2}$$ Decontamination Factor (DF) on L-shaped, bolt-shaped, and cylindrical-shaped waste. Q switch pulse YAG laser has over 10$$^{2}$$ DF on L-shaped and cylindrical-shaped waste, but on the other hand, under 10 DF on bolt-shaped waste. (3) In the case of using the argon gas as auxiliary gas, almost particles of secondary products are dropped as dross. In the case, scattering area is within 1m. On the other hand, in the case of using the atmosphere gas as auxiliary gas, almost particles of secondary products are floated in the air, its diameter are under 3$$mu$$m.
