Paper Abstract

A stable passively Q-switched Nd: YVO4 laser was demonstrated by use of a GaAs absorber grown at a low temperature (LT GaAs absorber) by the Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) technique, as well as an output coupler. The shortest pulse duration measured was about 12 ns with a single-pulse energy of 4.84 μJ, and the highest average output power is 1.16 W. The repetition rate is 360 KHz, which corresponds to the pump power of 2.8W.
