Paper Abstract

A cavity-dumped, YAG oscillator-amplifier system has been built which offers significant advantages over conventional Q-switched and modelocked systems. Pulse risetime of one nanosecond and pulsewidth of two nanoseconds has been achieved with greater than two hundred millijoule output at 532 nm. The system design is simple and straightforward, as opposed to the complex and difficult to operate mode-locked systems. It is provided in a fieldable configuration, making it quite attractive for ranging, tracking, remote sensing and non-linear studies.
