Stability analysis of a diode-pumped, thermal birefringence-compensated two-rod Nd:YAG laser with 770-W output power.

Abstract

Using a ray matrix method, we analyze theoretically how the r and theta polarizations affect the resonator stability condition of two laser heads with or without thermal birefringence compensation. The resonator stability condition is analyzed graphically for a plane-parallel and a concave-concave resonator. The maximum range of stable region is found for… (More)
