A self-consistent analysis of end-pumped Nd:Ti:Li NbO 3 microchip waveguide lasers based on the FFT-BPM has proposed. The algorithm of the model allows to describe the laser gain and pump absorption in terms of the complex atomic susceptibility for the case of the Nd 3+ ions. Considering the interference effects between the forward and backward light waves, the population inversion longitudinal and transversal spatial effects can be simulated. The laser characteristics of the Nd:Ti:LiNbO 3 waveguide laser correlate well with the experimental data and theoretical results. The design rules for the optimized microchip laser are also developed by using the proposed model.
