Paper Abstract

On the base of our previous experience in the dual-color lasers we present our actual development - experimental realization, theory of a flash-lamp pumped Nd3+:YAG laser, that produces output at two desired (tunable) lines in the spectral range of 1μm -1.44 μm in free lasing and Q-switching operation. The laser operation avoids the wave’s competition effect for the two generations operating in two different parts of the active volume of an active single crystal and two closely disposed prism-selected resonators. Also, as we have shown, varying the partial laser volumes and the losses at each resonator in combination, it is possible to produce the generation at the two desired wavelengths with near equal output energy, peak power simultaneously or at desired time interval. We have found and treated some peculiarity of the formation of the generation, such as the actually used parts of the partial volumes.
