Paper Abstract

We present the experimental results of the investigation of the dynamics of oscillation of the passively Q-switched neodymium-doped aluminum yttrium garnet (Nd:YAG) laser. The model of oscillation that allows explanation of appearance of repeat pulses is discussed. Several methods to eliminate these pulses are presented. In the study of the time characteristics of the SRS neodymium-doped potassium gadolinium tungstate Nd3+:KGd(WO4)2 laser (Nd:KGW), abnormal dynamics of a single pulse due to multimode emission was revealed. The performance and the designs of Nd:YAG and Nd:KGW minilasers are presented.
