Paper Abstract

Self-Q-switching of the Nd:crystal (Nd:YAG, Nd:GGG) and the Nd:glass multiloop lasers (phosphorus GLS-22) with self- pumped phase conjugation (SPC) in active media is investigated experimentally and theoretically. A possibility to realize single-mode single-frequent self-Q-switched laser radiation as repetitive giant pulse trains of 50 W average and 100 kW peak power with no Q-switcher is shown. Temporal dynamics of self-Q-switching and the mechanism of its occurrence on gain gratings are investigated with a help of the rate equations.
