Abstract

A new method of calculating quality parameters of a beam, which has passed through laser ceramics whose grains are large compared to the wavelength at an arbitrary value of thermally induced birefringence, has been developed. The intensity of a large-scale field in initial and orthogonal polarizations has been found. The results fully agree with the thermally induced distortions calculated by other methods. The intensity of a large-scale field was also obtained within the framework of the Rayleigh–Debye scattering theory for arbitrary size ceramic granules.
