  • Anisotropy of the photo-elastic effect in Nd : KGd(WO4) 2 laser crystals 

    Loiko, P. A.; Savitski, V. G.; Kemp, A.; Pavlyuk, A. A.; Kuleshov, N. V.; Yumashev, K. V. (Wiley, 2014)
    The anisotropy of thermal lensing and the photo-elastic effect is characterized for diodepumped Nd : KGd(WO4)2 crystals cut along the Np and Ng optical indicatrix axes and along its optical axis, O = Ng + 43°, at a laser wavelength of 1067 nm. Distortions in the spatial profile of the output laser beam are analyzed. The thermal lens is astigmatic; the orientation of its principal ...
