Abstract

With the goal to set a homogenizer to allow coupling of a stack of diodes with a disk amplifier medium for a longitudinally pumped laser or amplifier, we report simulation and experimental results on homogenization of the light supplied by a large stack of diodes. We investigate various kaleidoscope cross-section shapes and various optical coupling configurations.
