Paper Abstract

Operation of the Q-switching of a Nd:YAG laser at 1.06 micrometers and for the tunable color- center laser over 1.1 - 1.26 micrometers has been obtained by using a LiF:F2 color center crystal both as the Q-switch for the Nd:YAG laser and the active medium for the color-center laser. The interactive affection of the two lasers has been analyzed and calculated with the rate equation. We found the pulse duration of the YAG laser to be compressed, while the pulse duration of the color-center laser widened and its power improved significantly in this condition.
