Paper Abstract

High peak power and high energy laser pulse from 2 at% Nd:YAG and 1 at.% Nd:GdVO4 diode pumped at 808nm laser and passively Q-switched by Cr4+:YAG is reported. Pulse energy as large as 45&mgr;J, 10kHz repetition rate and 1.7MW peak power has been demonstrated for Nd:YAG while Nd:GdVO4 results are 4.4&mgr;J, 160kHz, 180kW.
