  • face-pumped laser

A device in which slab geometry internally compensates for thermal-optic distortion; the solid host material -- glass or Nd:YAG -- is in the form of a rectangular slab with plane parallel faces. The laser beam enters the slab via mirrors and by internal reflection is maintained between the surfaces for the desired path length.
