Compensating for birefringence in active elements of solid-state lasers: novel method

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

It is shown that a uniaxial crystal (cut along the optical axis) placed inside a telescope may compensate for thermally induced birefringence in laser-active elements. Depolarization was reduced in an experiment by an order of magnitude.
