Paper Abstract

Bistability was observed in a frequency-doubled and q-switched Nd:YAG rod-Laser. When the same cavity contains a quarter-wave plate (QWP) no such bistability is observed and higher output powers are obtained. By means of a Monte-Carlo simulation of the rate equations we achieve good agreement with the observed behavior.
