Paper Abstract

In this work, we have shown the possibility of performing pulsed laser operation at cryogenic temperature with innovative modular compact laser cavity. Using Yb:YAG/Cr:YAG configuration, at cryogenic temperature, in the preliminary laser experiments, we obtained a maximum average output power of 2.7 W with a repetition rate of around 50 kHz. The minimum pulse width, maximum pulse energy and peak power obtained were 2.5 ns, 60 μJ. and 25 kW respectively. To the best of our knowledge, an experimental approach on compact pulsed Q-switched lasers based on Yb:YAG/Cr:YAG at cryogenic temperature is tried for the first time.
