Great Reduction of Depolarization Loss by Use of a (110)-cut YAG Crystal

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Thermally induced birefringence which causes depolarization loss and bifocusing is a serious problem in developing high-power and high-beam-quality solid-state lasers and amplifiers.1 A number of techniques have been suggested to compensate the depolarization,2−4 which have been applied exclusively for (111)-cut YAG crystals. We report intrinsic reduction of depolarization without any compensation using Nd:YAG medium cut other than (111).
