The temperature distribution in different cooling system was studied. A thermal distribution model of laser crystal was established. Based on the calculation, the temperature distribution and deformation of ND:YVO4 crystal in different cooling system were obtained. When the pumping power is 2 W and the radius of pumping beams is 320μm, the temperature distribution and end face distortion of the laser crystal are lowest by using side directly hydrocooling method. The study shows that, the side directly hydrocooling method is a more efficient method to control the crystal temperature distribution and reduce the thermal effect.
