Paper Abstract

We discuss the design of a family of advanced hybrid Nd:YLF/phosphate glass lasers with output energies of 1, 2, 5 and 8 J at (lambda) equals 526.5 nm that have been optimized for holographic mastering and transfer work. By employing passive Q-switching using a long-life Cr4+:GSGG crystal we have attained an oscillator output of greater than 120 mJ in single transverse and longitudinal mode. This avoids the need to use expensive injection seeding, destabilizing etalons and extra preamplifiers and results in maximal stored-energy depletion of the Nd:Glass/SBS amplifier. This and other techniques has led to a family of compact, reliable and stable lasers with almost perfect parameters for holography.
