Paper Abstract

Single longitudinal mode solar pumped Nd:YAG ring cw and Q-switched lasers were simulated, built, and tested. The concentrator and laser designs, polarization control, and output coupling for cw and long pulse generation are presented. Laser pulses duration of 500 ns were measured supporting the single longitudinal mode operation with the linewidth of 2 MHz. This solar laser is proposed for remote sensing of the atmosphere from the outer space, namely the global wind measurement.
