Paper Abstract

Laser performance degradation occurs in solar pumped solid state lasers due to thermal effects in the active medium. We demonstrated improvement of the beam quality by reduction of the operating temperatures, as well as the use of phase conjugation to eliminate the induced beam distortions.
