Paper Abstract

The performance (in terms of output power and slope efficiency) of the passively Q-switched Nd:YAG and Nd:YVO4 lasers, both side pumped and end-pumped, will be reported and compared to our theoretical model. Passive Q- switch operation by a Cr4+:GGG element as a saturable absorber was studied in terms of pulse frequency as a function of pump power.
