Abstract
Review of thermo-optic effects in gain media of diode pumped lasers is presented. Methods of modeling and compensation of such effects are discussed. Results of characterization of end-pumped lasers by means of energetic and caustics measurements techniques are presented and discussed. Application of Wigner distribution method for characterization of aberrated laser beams is presented and discussed. Thermally induced astigmatism was observed for the anisotropic rods at high heat load.
