Paper Abstract

We demonstrate a durable and efficient 3 mJ 10 ns 100 Hz Nd:YAG laser developed with a view to the space borne operation. We discuss the cavity construction design principle, the approach to high efficiency and the smooth pulse operation. The experimental investigation for the best pair of Q-switch transmission and output coupler reflection coefficient is considered. The factors influencing the pulse shape are analyzed. The 100 Hz operation with good beam quality is demonstrated.
