By using a nearly hemispherical resonator and a tight focusing in the end-pumped solid-state laser, we successfully generated various laser transverse modes analogous to quantum Green’s functions. We further experimentally and numerically verified that the transverse order associated with quantum Green’s functions is noticeably raised with increasing the pump power induced by the thermal effect. More importantly, the high lasing efficiency and the salient structure enable the present laser source to be used in exploring the light–matter interaction. %R 10.1364/prj.5.000733 %U http://www.opticsjournal.net/Articles/Abstract?aid=OJ190110001368sYu2x5 %W 中国光学期刊网 %1 JIS Version 3.0.0
