Paper Abstract

A tunable Cr:Forsterite laser with intracavity Nd:YAG pump and its experimental results are presented. To our best knowledge, this is the first tunable intracavity pumped Cr4+ ion activated laser. A theoretical model of saturable absorber operating both as a laser and an intracavity Q-switch for its pumping laser is presented and discussed. A good agreement of the numerical calculations with the experimental results has been obtained.
