Abstract:
A Thulium Germanate thin disk laser prototype is developed and its potential applications are discussed. Unfortunately, the thin disk gain material for the CW prototype was unable to lase due to thermal limitations within the disk. However, a CW output power model and a physical pump chamber module have been developed, along with the supporting Zemax models and alignment procedures so other gain materials and future improvements can be tested.
