The present investigation numerically modeled the thermal behavior of the laser diode using the parabolic transient conduction equation. In addition, the current study compared the thermal performance of the continuous wave pump lasers versus the modulated wave pump lasers. This comparison revealed that the temperature of the modulated wave pump laser can approach the temperature of the continuous wave pump laser with the same average power dissipation when the frequency approaches infinity. Finally, the resulting thermal behavior was correlated and expressed in an empirical form, which physically described the thermal performance of the modulating pump laser.
