The influence of energy-transfer upconversion on thermal lensing in end-pumped Nd:YLF and Nd:YAG lasers
A large increase i n thermal lens power in Nd:YLF (factor ~6) and Nd:YAG (factor ~2), caused by upconversion, has been experimentally measured and theoretically calculated under conditions of high excitation density (typical of Q-switched lasers) when compared to CW lasing conditions
