Abstract
The thermally induced lens is a critical issue in high-power diode-pumped solid-state lasers. A self-adaptive scheme to balance the thermal lenses in laser resonators is presented. The requirements for the thermo-optical self-adaptive element and its influence on the resonator are discussed. With an appropriate compensating element and the correct resonator design, constant beam parameters are expected to be achieved over a pump range of several kilowatts.
