Abstract

Summary form only given.Self-adaptive laser resonator architectures based on dynamic gain gratings have been demonstrated to correct for thermally-induced problems in pulse-pumped solid-state lasers. Phase conjugation and efficient gain grating formation have also been demonstrated in a cw amplifier. In this paper we present, for the first time to our knowledge, operation of a self-adaptive diode-pumped solid-state laser system capable of producing high-power cw laser radiation with good beam quality. Both an injected and a self-starting version of the system will be presented.
