Paper Abstract

In this paper, the stability of laser-diode-pumped passively Q-switched lasers with a Cr4+:YAG as the saturable absorber and an Nd3+:YAG or an Nd3+:SFAP as the gain medium is studied. First, the influence of the transversal mode structure on the stability is investigated. Then, with the laser operating in TEMoo mode, the variations of the pulse energy fluctuation and the repetition rate fluctuation as functions of the repetition rate are measured. Finally, the repetition rate fluctuation and the pulse energy fluctuation are semi-quantitatively and qualitatively analyzed, respectively.
