Paper Abstract

The thermal conduction theory based on uniform heating in the slab laser has been presented before, but results from the theory are very different from the results of experiments. In this paper, a non-uniform heating model based on the absorption law of the medium is proposed. According to the model, the temperature distribution in the slab laser under CW and pulse pumping is solved. Thermal stress and fracture limitation of the slab are given. The new model is in good accordance with the experimental results.
