Disk fiber laser is a novel fiber laser. The pumping scheme of such type of fiber laser is side pumping by LD arrays and the pumping scale is large in comparison with the core pumping manner in a typical clad pumping scheme. More pumping power could be coupled into the disk and higher output power could be achieved. To optimize the system of disk fiber laser, it is necessary to analyze the parameter of each part of it. In this paper, the configuration factors that influence the pumping efficiency of disk fiber laser were analyzed and propagation of the rays in disk fiber laser was simulated using the method of BPM. In the process of simulation, the fiber was treated as cylindrical lens. The optimal position of pump resource is obtained with a fixed size of the fiber cross section.
