Title: Effect of diode wavelength broadening in a diode end-pumped solid-state amplifier

Abstract

The effect of the spectral broadening in cw diode pumping and the wavelength shift in pulsed pumping of a solid-state laser is investigated theoretically.A very simple model allowing the computation of the reduction of the absorbed pump energy is developed.The results are applied to an ytterbium-doped solid-state laser and should be fruitful for amplifier and laser design.
