Abstract

We built a 32-laser-diode-formed virtual point source pumping system and achieved different pump light distributions from central intense to central uniform and central depressed. Continuous wave TEM00 operations of a Nd:YAG laser were performed under these pump light distributions and their thermal lensing effects were estimated. Results show that the operation under central depressed pump light distribution has the lowest thermal lensing effect and can provide the highest output power, which agrees with the results derived from the theoretical calculation with the heat conduction equation.
