Paper Abstract

Observed thermal lensing in AgGaSe$2 and ZnGeP$2 is compared with theoretical predictions of the thermal gradients and resulting laser beam aberrations. Accurate simulation of the thermo-optical behavior of these crystals is important for scaling high-average-power mid-IR 3-wave mixing applications.
