Abstract

The temperature dependence of the reflectivity of volume Bragg grating mirrors is shown to determine the performance of a solid-state laser. Mirrors with reflectivities that vary with temperature are then considered that make the temperature-independent operation of Nd:YAG (and other) lasers possible.
