Paper Abstract

The aspects of the optical power density resonator mirrors loaded in dynamically stable resonators at high power operation are discussed. A concept for symmetric multirod resonators is proposed as a way to reduce the on-mirrors power density proportionally to the square of the number of the rods used to obtain the same output power. Two-rods symmetric dynamically stable resonators are investigated theoretically. An optimized for 400 W average power operation at low diffraction limited beams two-rod dynamically stable resonator is designed for purposes of a solid-state laser cutting system.
