Abstract

Lens ducts have the potential to couple the output from a laser diode array efficiently into the gain medium of a solid-state laser in an end-pumped configuration. Using a ray-tracing method we investigate different design approaches of lens ducts and demonstrate the possibility to obtain an output beam with a symmetric profile that is insensitive to the small displacement from the output surface of a lens duct.
