Paper Abstract

An Anti-Resonant Ring (ARR) structure was introduced to a conventional passively solid-state Q-switched Nd:YAG laser for the first time. Using a plane-ARR critical resonator, and Cr4+:YAG crystal, BDN dye film and color centered LiF:F-2 crystal as saturable absorber. High energy and high stability single Q-switched pulse with the output energies range from 101.6 - 82.5 mJ and stabilities range from 99.2 - 98.6% were obtained respectively. The experimental results were analyzed well by using the mechanism of the transient grating effect generated by ARR structure.
