Paper Abstract

Currently flashlamp-pumped Nd:YAG lasers operate at a pulse repetition rate of 10...50 Hz. However, some applications call for increasing pulse repetition rate up to 300...500 Hz. Lasers with high repetition rates may be of practical interest to use in hydrography, lidars, locators, and bathimetric systems. We present the design and the performance of a compact high repetition-rate Nd:YAG oscillator pumped by single flashlamp in electro-optical Q- switched operation with second harmonic generation (SHG).
