Bibliographical noteFunding Information:
We simulated the beam radius in the cavity. It is shown that the reduction of the beam radius due to the thermal lens effect is the cause of damage. In conclusion, to reduce the damage, the mirror must be positioned considering the damage threshold and beam size of the mirror. The rod should also be located near the center of the resonator. The new resonator structure was presented through the simulation results.
