Abstract
A slab geometry, with a zig-zag totally internally reflected optical path, significantly reduces thermal focusing, stress induced biaxial focusing and birefringence in a solid state laser host. We present results of a theoretical and experimental study of slab geometry Nd:Glass and Nd:YAG laser systems.
