Paper Abstract

This paper describes an analytical and numerical modeling of photon flux dynamics in passively Q-switched Nd:YAG lasers. The types of solutions to the system of nonlinear- coupled equations are related to various possible modes in which such laser systems may operate: before the bleaching of the saturable absorber, the giant pulse mode, the self- oscillating mode.
