Paper Abstract

Q-switch performance of YAG:Nd at the wavelength of 1.32 μm under 2 W laser diode pumping has been studied using plane-plane and confocal resonator configurations. YAG:V3+ passive shutter has been applied. The pulse train with frequency 17 kHz and pulse duration of 8 ns have been obtained. An overage power of 430 mW and 160 mW were achieved in CW and Q-switch modes respectively, peak power in Q-switch mode being of 700 W.
