Paper Abstract

We report a diode pumped 2 micrometers Tm:YAG laser operating in a pulsed mode, with an RTP Pockels cell as the Q-switch generator. A maximum output of 2.4 mJ with a pulse width of 57ns was achieved. The crystal was pumped with an input energy of 85mJ at a rate of 20Hz. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time that RTP was used as the Q-switch generator in a 2 micrometers laser resonator.
