Abstract
In this paper, the operation properties of unstable resonators with graded reflectivity mirror (GRM-UR) are studied numerically in a solid-state thin-disk laser in terms of beam quality and power threshold. By comparing to traditional unstable resonator with same output coupling fraction, results show that the GRM-UR is advantageous to suppress ASE effect, but hard to achieve better beam quality when the phase aberrations cannot be well compensated within the cavity.
