Abstract

The stability of the output of a heat capacity laser was measured. The output power dropped rapidly with the increase of lasting time. The result showed that the rise of the average temperature of laser medium was not the main reason, while the non-uniform distribution of the temperature was the main reason which resulted in depolarization and maladjustment of resonant cavity.
