Paper Abstract

Unstable resonators can improve the beam quality of solid-state lasers. Various configurations have been devised in order to reduce the sensitivity of the resonator to variations of the thermal lensing taking place within the pumped gain medium. A simple geometrical analysis allows a first order comparison of these configurations, in terms of their sensitivity to thermal lensing variations as well as to misalignments.
