A novel Q-switching scheme, using rapid variation of the path difference between the cavities of a multiple-cavity resonator, is demonstrated. A thermo-optic phase modulator was used to switch the cavity loss of a Y-junction glass waveguide laser between high and low states. Q-switched pulses with durations of 5µs and peak powers of 70mW were obtained.
