In this erratum we clarify our previously published paper [Appl. Opt. 57, 4008 (2018) https://www.osapublishing.org/ao/abstract.cfm?uri=ao-57-15-4008 ], where we used a solar spectrum truncated to a maximum wavelength of 830 nm in the numerical modelling, but did not state this in the paper. Here, we present a graph of the numerically modelled absorption in the Nd:YAG rod as a function of the diffuse reflectivity of the chamber walls using the full solar spectrum, confirming that the theoretical maximum possible absorption we predict is in agreement with literature values.
