Abstract
Considerable work is being undertaken to develop laser sources with increasingly high power and good beam quality. In all solid state lasers, especially cw ones, optical pumping causes heat to be generated in the gain volume which is conducted away via a surface. The associated temperature gradient produces refractive index variations which degrade the beam quality.
