Broad-Band, Tunable Passive Q-Switching With Semiconductor-Doped Glass Filters
Abbreviated Journal Title
INTENSITY-DEPENDENT ABSORPTION; SATURATION; LASER; Optics
Passive Q-switching using semiconductor doped glass filters is demonstrated for the recently developed class of broad band, tunable, solid state lasers. Saturation of the absorption in such filters in the 800-900 nm region is reported along with data on efficient Q-switching of a Cr:LiSAF laser producing single pulses as short as 19 ns and energies as high as 95 mJ per pulse. Data on laser induced darkening of the filters is also presented.
