Paper Abstract

We present research on an Nd:YAG Q-switched laser with VRM optical resonator. High beam quality can be obtained efficiently by choosing an optimum profile, central reflectivity of VRM, and a magnification of an unstable resonator. Up to 100 mJ TEM00 mode output pulse (10 ns pulsewidth) can be obtained with (phi) 5 X 50 mm Nd:YAG rod. A new viewpoint about perturbation stability of the resonator is also discussed in this paper.
