Stabilisation of single longitudinal mode operation in a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser
Detection of the reflected laser beam power from the mode-selecting etalon in a prelase-Q-switched laser provides an indicator of mode-frequency drifts. The detected signal can be used to control a piezo-mounted resonator mirror, thus correcting the drift and providing a means for maintaining single longitudinal mode operation on every shot.

Abstract

Detection of the reflected laser beam power from the mode-selecting etalon in a prelase-Q-switched laser provides an indicator of mode-frequency drifts. The detected signal can be used to control a piezo-mounted resonator mirror, thus correcting the drift and providing a means for maintaining single longitudinal mode operation on every shot.
