Paper Abstract

This work describes recent progress in the development of solid-state laser using a composite disk the active mirror configuration. Pump diode arrays are placed around the perimeter of the disk and pump light is injected into the undoped edge. Uniform laser gain can be achieved with proper choice of lasant doping level, diode placement, and diode divergence. Effective reduction of thermo-optical distortions makes this laser suitable for pulse amplification at high-average power.
