Abstract
Dependence of thermally induced depolarization on the diameter of the laser beam and the ratio of the length of the optical element to its diameter is investigated experimentally and numerically. The conditions under which the thermal depolarization depends on the diameter of the beam for face-end and side heatsink are determined. Numerical modeling is supported by experimental results.
