Paper Abstract

A narrow band, tunable Cr:LiSAF laser oscillator using self injection- locking for line narrowing was developed. With two etalons and one prism in the master oscillator arm of the composite resonator, output energies of up to 75 mJ/pulse were obtained with a linewidth of 1.5 pm FWHM at 830 nm, and a pulsewidth of 70 ns. This linewidth was achieved without the use of a separate injection seed source. Up to 530 mJ output energy was obtained in long pulse, free-running mode. The laser was tuned from 800 nm to 960 nm. the Q-switched laser data was consistent with the performance predicted by our model.
