QSWITCHED LASER WITH CONTROLLABLE PULSE LENGTH Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Experimental results of a recently proposed technique for obtaining Q-switched laser pulses of controllable length are presented. A lithium iodate doubling crystal inside the cavity of a Nd: YAG laser running at 0.946 is used to provide both output coupling and an easily adjustable, nonlinear loss mechanism. Controllable pulse lengths in the range of 200 nsec to 1 at 0.473 have been achieved at nominally constant energy. 1971 The American Institute of Physics.
