The use of diffuse reflectance materials in laser pump reflector design can lead to significant improvements in laser performance over reflectors employing more traditional, specular (or mirror-like) reflectors. Diffuse reflectors provide a more predictable and uniform beam profile, and reduced susceptibility to parasitic oscillations. Since laser pumping involves multiple reflections within the pump chamber, the efficiency of a laser pump chamber can be significantly affected by relatively… CONTINUE READING
