Abstract

The effect of the spectral broadening in cw diode pumping and the wavelength shift in pulsed pumping of a solid-state laser is investigated theoretically. A very simple model allowing the computation of the reduction of the absorbed pump energy is developed. The results are applied to an ytterbium-doped solid-state laser and should be fruitful for amplifier and laser design.
