Abstract:The operation dynamics of end-pumped solid-state lasers are investigated by means of a spatially resolved numerical rate-equation model and a time-dependent analytical thermal model. The rate-equation model allows the optimization of parameters such as the output coupler transmission and gain medium length, with the aim of improving the laser output performance. The time-dependent analytical thermal model is able to predict the temperature and the corresponding induced thermal stresses on the pump face of quasi-continuous wave (qcw) end-pumped laser rods. Both models are found to be in very good agreement with experimental results.
