Paper Abstract

Experimental and theoretical studies on the thermal stability of optical cavity have been performed. The focal length of the thermal lens measured was 4~6cm for our laser system. By applying disalignrnent transfer matrix method, analyses ofthe thermal stability for parallel plane cavity, plane-rectangular prism cavity and the plane-TIR (total internal reflection) prisni one were performed. The results showed that: ( 1 ) The plane-rectangular prism cavity can compensate the thermal effect in one direction; ( 2) The plane-TIR prism cavity can compensate the thermal effect in all direction.
