Paper Abstract

The main purpose of our investigations consists in creation the solid state laser with power approximately 500 W and high beam quality. The beam quality, as well known, is described with parameter M2, that characterizes the focusing properties of laser radiation. Notice that the high power technological lasers with lamp pumping have the typical value M2 from 20 to 100. It could be decreased by means of use the special technical methods of compensation of birefringence and aberrations in the induced thermal lenses of active elements.
