A two-step Q-switching technique for producing high power in a single longitudinal mode
Hanna, DC, Luther-Davies, B, Rutt, HN and Smith, RC (1971) A two-step Q-switching technique for producing high power in a single longitudinal mode. Opto-Electronics 3, 163-169.
An electro-optic Q-switch has been opened in two steps to allow slow pulse build-up giving, in conjunction with a resonant reflector, a high degree of mode selection in a way analogous to the use of saturable absorbers. Using this technique, a flash pumped Nd:CaWO4 laser has produced reliable operation in a single longitudinal and transverse mode with an output power of 250 kW.
