Paper Abstract

Thermally induced gradients of refractive index play a fundamental role in laser mode formation in diode-end- pumped lasers. The divergence and beam quality as well as efficiency and stability of generation depend on a heat distribution in active medium. The paper is devoted to theoretical and experimental investigations of influence of temperature gradients on optical parameters of output beams. The investigations were made for several active media (Nd:YAG, Nd:YLF, Nd:YVO4 , Nd: S-VAP, Nd:LSB ). Laser and thermooptical parameters of these crystals are presented in Table 1.
