Multimode Solar-Pumped Lasers

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


Milestone multimode solar-pumped laser designs and their laser output performances are introduced in this chapter. Since the knowledge of imaging and nonimaging primary, secondary and tertiary concentrators are vital for successful solar laser designs, Zemax® and LASCAD™ numerical analysis examples are provided in order to ensure student’s clear understandings of how concentrated solar radiation is optically coupled and absorbed by the laser medium by Zemax® software and, consequently, how solar laser output power is numerically calculated by LASCAD™ software.
