2008 (English)In: Optics Communications, ISSN 0030-4018, E-ISSN 1873-0310, Vol. 281, no 4, 672-678 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The effects of heat load on longitudinally diode-pumped solid-state laser for generation of Bessel-Gauss (BG) beams are considered and the beam profile under Gaussian and super-Gaussian pump profiles are fully investigated. The results are not only in good agreement with the experimental results of a 2W Nd:YAG laser generating the BG beams but also explain the discrepancy between the theory and experiment reported by Hakola et al.
