Paper Abstract

Q-switching of diode-pumped Nd:YAG and Nd:YLF at 1.064, 1.047, and 1.321 microns is discussed. Single frequency versions have also been demonstrated. A simple 3 longitudinal mode rate-equation model is used to predict pulse stability. Wavelength extension by frequency doubling and fiberoptic Raman shifting is discussed, and several applications are described.
