Paper Abstract

Design considerations for solar pumped laser amplifiers are presented. Various materials and geometries are evaluated and as a conclusion the "active mirror" amplifier is chosen as a preferred geometry. An experimental set up of an active mirror solar pumped amplifier and some preliminary performance data are presented. Small signal gain of 10% was measured on a 44 mm gain path in a solar pumped Nd glass disc.
