ABSTRACT
The article reports on the problems addressed by researchers at Sanda National Laboratories and Teem Photonics concerning the degradation in beam quality because of thermal effects in the gain medium. By optimizing the pump-beam focusing and heat-sinking of the microchip, the researchers achieve stable operation over a wide range of repetition rates with constant pulse duration and pulse energy. The approach is restricted to low pulse energies, but limitation is acceptable to low pulse energies.
