Abstract

We have numerically shown that a high-power Bessel–Gauss beam can be generated by a solid-state thin-disk laser using an axicon-based resonator. Ytterbium ions doped in the YAG crystal were utilized in this configuration as an active medium. We obtained the output power, intensity, and phase profiles on the output coupler and the active medium.
