A two-step Q-switching technique for producing high power in a single longitudinal mode

Hanna, D.C., Luther-Davies, B., Rutt, H.N. and Smith, R.C. (1971) A two-step Q-switching technique for producing high power in a single longitudinal mode Optical and Quantum Electronics, 3, (4), pp. 163-169.

Record type: Article


An electro-optic Q-switch has been opened in two steps to allow slow pulse build-up giving, in conjunction with a resonant reflector, a high degree of mode selection in a way analogous to the use of saturable absorbers. Using this technique, a flash pumped Nd:CaWO4 laser has produced reliable operation in a single longitudinal and transverse mode with an output power of 250 kW.
