Paper Abstract

The hot-band oscillation of CO2 laser with saturable absorber shows new features in passive Q-switching instability. A proposed model is applicable to the nonlinear dynamic process including vibration-to-vibration energy transfer which influence the passive Q- switching instability. The vibrational rate constant is determined for the first time from the analysis of the passive Q-switching instability.
