Paper Abstract

The influence of thermally induced GRIN effects on the output characteristics of cw diode pumped lasers was investigated theoretically and experimentally. Several configurations of cavity and pump geometry were examined. The changes of the Rayleigh range, waist size and divergence were observed with the changes of pump power. A thermally aberrated Bessel-like beam was observed for high intensities of a pump. Satisfactory accordance between theoretical predictions and experimental results was demonstrated.
