Paper Abstract

The 3 mJ output energy for Nd:YAG, 1.6 mJ for Nd:YVO4 were obtained in free running mode. Above 170 kW peak power in 5.6 ns pulse duration was achieved in electrooptic Q- switched Nd:YVO4 laser. The lower threshold, near diffraction limited output, shorter cavity length advantage Nd:YVO4 for low energy, high pulse power applications.
