Abstract
In this paper, the thermally induced lensing effects of a diode-pumped high-average-power solid-state laser were treated by using appropriate linear and nonlinear matrices. The single- or two-rod resonators are investigated and optimized. Important parameters of the laser resonators, such as the curvature radii of the end mirrors, positions of the rods within resonators, the stabilities, the changes of beam spot size with respect to the diode-pumped power at the center of the laser gain material. The optimized designs for laser resonators not only enables laser to maximize TEM00-volume mode in the laser rod but laser to be insensitive to the fluctuations of diode-pumped power and mechanical misalignment.
