High Brightness Solar-Pumped Lasers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


High brightness solar-pumped lasers are introduced in this chapter. The pumping configurations and the output performances of TEM00-mode and low-order modes solar lasers are described. Techniques for the efficient extraction of TEM00-mode solar laser power are discussed in this chapter. Readers will under-stand how thermal lensing, resonant cavity parameters, solar pumping conditions and laser rod dimensions affect the TEM00-mode laser output performance.
