Paper Abstract

A detailed analysis was carried out for the characteristics of dynamic stability zone of parallel-plane-concave laser cavity on the basis of quantitatively taking account of an equivalent convex lens due to thermal lens effect. It was found that in a special case the parallel-plane-concave cavity can work with only one stability zone, in stead of two stability zones under general circumstances. According to theoretical analysis, we selected a set of cavity parameters by taking Nd:YAG laser as an example and carried out the experiments. The results showed that within a rather wide range of pump power, the output of the laser increased steadily, almost in a lineal way.
