Fast resonance-detection technique for single-frequency operation of injection-seeded Nd:YAG lasers. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • A new technique for maintaining single-frequency output from injection-seeded Nd:YAG lasers is described. It involves quickly sweeping the slave-cavity longitudinal-mode spectrum when the flash lamps have created a maximum population inversion. An interference signal is detected by fast electronics, and the Q switch is opened when the slave cavity is resonant with the injected field.
