Paper Abstract

Five types of passive Q-switched as well as simultaneously Q-switch mode-locked modulators: plastic dye sheets ( Kodak 9850 cellulose acetate dye sheets), lithium fluoride crystals containing F2 - color centers ( LiF: F2 -), chromium doped yttrium aluminum garnet crystals ( Cr4+:YAG), ionic color filter glass ( Schott RG1000 color filter glass) and the single crystal semiconductor wafers ( GaAs, Fe doped InP, Zn doped InP, S doped InP, etc.) used for the modulation of the Nd:hosted(Nd:YAG, Nd:YVO4, and Nd:LSB) lasers have been investigated in detail in our researches. We have also investigated into the applications of the Q-switch mode-locked pulses train for the development of higher resolution solid state laser range finder. We will also present the high accuracy laser ranging results, the micro-motor that driven mechanical parts from the stepping digital ranging readout, to precisely control the best focus of a miniature zoom lens modular. The core simultaneously Q-switch mode-locked modulators microchip laser is the key part of our automatic optical inspection system.
