Paper Abstract

The paper analyzes the performance of plane-concave resonators with internal thermal lenses, and gives out stability and instability regions in terms of dioptric power. Based on stability region's symmetry and stable and unstable resonator's characteristics, relationship between resonators' loss and pump power is obtained, and then, a detailed analysis for output power of cw plane-concave Nd:YAG laser is presented. Experimental results clearly show the existence of two-peak structure predicted by the theoretical analysis.
