Abstract: One of the main problems that limit the power scaling of diode-end-pumped solid-state lasers is the generation of heat inside the laser gain medium which can ultimately cause fracture. In this paper a time-dependent analytical thermal model that determines the temperature and the thermally induced stresses in isotropic rods is presented. Even though the model is developed for isotropic rods, it is shown that it can also be used to accurately estimate the thermal effects in anisotropic rods
