Paper Abstract

Thermally induced index of refraction gradients and their effect on the performance of diode-laser-pumped monolithic Nd:glass lasers are discussed. A simple technique for modeling thermal effects in these lasers is described. This model is useful in optimzing the cavity design and selecting the best glass for the monolithic ring laser.
