Paper Abstract

Generation dynamics of powerful single-mode Nd:YAG laser system with optically coupled cavities at passive Q- switching by a crystal LiF:F2 is described. The mechanism of occurrence of high-energy nanosecond pulse trains at CW-pumping is established. The regimes of generation having character of low-frequency cavity dumping of the compound resonator are investigated. Within the limits of 10 percent the qualitative and quantitative concurrence of calculation and experimental parameters of radiation by average power up to 100 W and peak power more than 400 kW is obtained.
