Irregular lasing pattern formation and dynamic effects in a thin-slice solid-state laser.

Abstract

We found an abrupt transverse-mode transition from an irregular to a Gaussian lasing pattern or billiard-like lasing patterns with increasing the pump power in a laser-diode-pumped thin-slice Nd:GdVO4 laser with coated dielectric mirrors on both ends. A variety of irregular stationary lasing patterns were observed with a slight change in the pump position… (More)
