Paper Abstract

A phenomenon called "nucleation-damage" was observed in the laser rod made of dual-doped laser crystal (Ce, Nd): YAG. This damage occurred mainly iii the zone ofthe rod nearby the total reflector. A replacement of the plane-reflector with a rectangular prism or a TIR ( total internal reflecting ) prism diminished this damage considerably.
