Title: Effect of crystal length on the thermal characteristic in Nd: YLF laser with 20W diode pumped

Abstract

Theoretical results are reported on thermal effects along the π- 1047nm and σ- 1053nm polarizations in a cut Nd: YLF rod crystal by using 20W Diode -End-pumped. The crystal length effects on the fraction of absorbed pump radiation converted into heat, radial temperature distribution, and the change in a radial refractive index. The result from this study has shown that a maximum fraction converted into heat is calculated to be around 24% and thermal effects of π-polarized 1047 nm stronger than σ-polarized 1053 nm.
