Single frequency Q-switched operation of a diode-pumped Nd:YLF ring laser

Clarkson, W.A. and Hanna, D.C. (1991) Single frequency Q-switched operation of a diode-pumped Nd:YLF ring laser Optics Communications, 84, (12), pp. 51-54. (doi:10.1016/0030-4018(91)90027-B).

Record type: Article


A diode-pumped Nd:YLF ring laser is described which incorporates an acousto-optic rhomb to enforce unidirectional single frequency operation and Q-switching. Since unidirectional operation does not depend on polarization discrimination it can easily be applied to birefringent laser materials such as YLF. Q-switched pulses of 70 pJ and 10 ns duration are achieved.
