Mwarania, E.K., Murphy, D.M., Hempstead, M., Reekie, L. and Wilkinson, J.S. (1992) Integrated Q-switched multiple-cavity glass waveguide laser IEEE Photonics Technology Letters, 4, (3), pp. 235-237. (doi:10.1109/68.122377).

Record type: Article


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.
