Thermal modeling of the Thin Disk Laser

Speiser, Jochen (2011) Thermal modeling of the Thin Disk Laser. Journal of Directed Energy, 4 (1). Directed Energy Professional Society.

Full text not available from this repository.


The paper discusses the needs and requirements of the modeling of the Thin Disk laser with a focus on thermal modeling. Results concerning high power extraction (> 10 kW with one disk), including thermal behavior, stress and thermal lens are presented. The challenges concerning the modeling of high energy storage in a Thin Disk amplifier are discussed. An approach for modeling the influence of amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) on the transient behavior of the inversion is described. Additionally, an approach to find the scaling limits due to ASE is briefly described and results are presented.
