Abstract

Using a ray matrix method, the influences of r and θ polarization on the resonator stability condition of two laser heads in tandem with or without thermal birefringence compensation were theoretically analyzed. Optimal experimental result was obtained with a short plane-parallel resonator including two laser heads and with a 90° quartz rotator in between. 480 W laser output power was obtained with optical-to-optical efficiency of 40.2% for such a resonator.
