Abstract

Line-focus pumped systems offer the scope for power scaling by lengthening the pump volume while increasing its power proportionally. In these systems, a thin crystal slab is used, hence enabling the reduction of temperature rise in the center of the laser crystal. The result is efficient operation in temperature-sensitive materials. Further, the required pump-beam optics are simple and easy to align when compared with beam-shapers.
