Abstract

A novel cladding pumped Nd3+ fibre laser operating in an enhanced Q-switched regime with stable repetition rate is described. By exploiting fibre nonlinearities in the fibre cavity, we demonstrated peak power of 3.7 kW, enhanced by an order of magnitude over conventional Q-switched devices. Pulse durations as short as 2 ns have been achieved
