Paper Abstract

Elliptical cylinder pump cavity is widely used in solid state lasers. But because of the complexity of its technology, a replacement is always pursued. Intersectional circle cylinder pump cavity is a kind ofcavity similar to the elliptical cylinder one, and several investigators have used it. However, theoretical analysis for it is rather scarce. In this paper, the authors presents a design for this kind ofcavity, suitable for miniature lasers. The most importantjob in the design is to explore the optimum couple oflight energy, so as to get the highest efficiency ofaccumulating light. For miniature conductive cooling devices, the construction ofpump cavity is schematically shown in Figure 1. Principal parameters needed to define are: the dimension between the pumping lamp and the laser rod 2C; the distance ofthe cutted height h (see Figure 2) and the radius R of the intersectional cycle cylinders. By theoretical analysis, a method ofdesignning this kind ofcavity has been performed. The results are listed below: h=0289R,R=2C.
