Paper Abstract

The thermal effects of diode-pumped Nd:YVO4 and Nd:YAG lasers are analyzed by a one-dimensional model and a three-dimensional model, respectively. The characteristics of the Nd:YVO4 and Nd:YAG rod are comparatively discussed, which include temperature distributions and thermal lensing effect. The model takes into account of index parts and end effect. The theoretical analyses provide a good prediction for the thermal lensing of diode-pumped Nd:YVO4 and Nd:YAG lasers.
