Fiber lasers have attracted considerable attention when their power can realistically be scaled to kilowatt level and beyond. In this paper, we assumed that the fiber core and first clad are exposed to a pump source with a super-Gaussian profile of order four. The effects of this non-uniform heat deposition on thermal, stress and thermooptics properties such as temperature-dependent change of refractive index and thermally induced stress have been comprehensively studied and their equations analytically derived.

In this work, the inhomogeneous equation of heat conduction was exactly solved by applying inhomogeneous boundary conditions for laser crystals of aspect ratio=1 (aspect ratio=radius of the laser rod/length of the laser rod). We have shown that the paraxial ray approximation leads the solution to be a function of

In this paper we investigate the core temperature of air-clad photonic crystal fiber (PCF) lasers pumped by a super-Gaussian (SG) source of order four. The results are compared with conventional double-clad fiber (DCF) lasers pumped by the same super-Gaussian and by top-hat pump profiles.

Thermal effects of a double-end-pumped cubic Nd:YVO4 laser crystal are investigated in this paper. A detailed analysis of temperature distribution and thermal stress in cubic crystal with circular shape pumping is discussed. It has been shown that by considering the total input powers as constant, the double-end-pumped configurations with equal pump power can be considered as having a minimum thermal effect with respect to the other end-pumped configuration.
