Abstract

In this paper a new efficient laser pump consisting of a tube and two axicons is discussed. The pumping system is simple in fabricating and alignment. Its efficiency is first estimated using geometrical optics and it seems to compare favorably with the well-known elliptical pump. Then experimental data were given which give qualitative agreement with the prediction.
