Abstract

The thermal-birefringence effect in Nd3+-doped YAG ceramics has been investigated. The amount of depolarization induced by thermal birefringence in Nd:YAG ceramics is nearly the same as that in (111)-cut single crystals at the same Nd3+ concentration. However, depolarization becomes larger as the Nd3+ concentration increases, even at the same absorbed pump power.
