Paper Abstract

We derive an expression for the time dependent temperature distribution in a finite solid state laser rod for an end-pumped beam of arbitrary shape. The specific case of end pumping by circular (constant) or gaussian beam is described here. We discuss the temperature profile for a single pump pulse and for repetetive pulse operation. The particular case of the temperature distribution in a pulsed Titanium Sapphire rod is considered.
