hello. I faced problem with microchip laser. I used 1 cm nd yag laser crystal with passive cryag modulator. End pump configuration was used for experiment. I'm getting laser beam, which have extra intensity on the side of the beam ( in picture its marked as a red circle). Why such thing is happening? Could it be that pump diameter is much bigger than a stable mode in laser crystal? Thanks!
