Abstract

We have developed a unique numerical laser model by use of a commercial physical optics software package. The experimentally measured lasing threshold, slope efficiency, power output distribution, and phase front have been derived. This model is particularly powerful for monitoring the effects caused by thermal distortions encountered in power scaling lasers. Extrapolations have been made through parametric studies to predict changes required in the laser design that would optimize the performance of the laser.
