Paper Abstract

By combining the techniques of AO (acousto-optic) Q-switching and EO (electro-optic) cavity-dumping, a new type of diode-pumped nanosecond pulsed laser was proposed for the first time. The Q- switched pulses at 1.06micrometers with a peak power of 5.02kW and a pulse width 3.1ns pumped a 1W laser diode on the Nd:YVO4 microchip at the 1kHz repetition rate were obtained. The temporal characteristics of the pulses were analyzed numerically. The experiment results are shown to be in good agreement with theoretical predictions.
