Abstract

The amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) effect is a major factor affecting large, high gain Yb:YAG thin disk lasers. In this paper, the analytical model is built to estimate the ASE photon flux density of thin disk crystals with different thickness anti-ASE caps. Theoretical analysis shows that it is unnecessary to use a critical thickness anti-ASE cap to suppress the ASE effect. At the same time, adjusting the coupler reflectivity of the resonator is an effective way to decrease the ASE effect and decrease the thickness of the anti-ASE cap to effectively suppress the ASE effect. This paper will better reveal how the anti-ASE cap suppresses the ASE effect.
