Abstract
Thermal heating is a major limiting factor in scaling the average power of a solid-state laser. In this paper some primary factors which affect the thermal effects of the typical side-pumped and side-cooled slab laser are discussed. The temperature and stress distribution in the cross-section in the laser crystal are calculated by using FEA. Some conclusions which optimize the performance of the side-pumped and side-cooled laser are drawn.
