Paper Abstract

We have investigated many different type of solid-state lasers and the materials that can passively Q-switch, mode-lock, Q-switched mode-lock all the above solid-state lasers. In the advanced applications of the solid-state lasers, the microchip laser configurations had been used satisfactory for nearly the past decade. In all the microchip laser developments, the only tolerance that can reduce the physics size, optimize the modulated output efficiency and minimize the component price is to use the doped single crystal semiconductor saturable absorbing modulators as we have published. Here we use the MEMS technologies for the fabrication of the most compact, highest efficiency and most low price semiconductor substrate microchip laser. Two out of four components of the various OPO microchip lasers, that generate visible, near infrared and infrared wavelengths and with Q-switch, mode-lock, Q-switched mode-lock modulation could be achieved.
