Abstract

A stable single-frequency Q-switched Tm:YAG laser was demonstrated. The laser was injection seeded by a monolithic nonplanar ring oscillator laser utilizing the ramp–hold–fire technique. The measurements of the output parameters were presented. This paper focused on investigation of the frequency stability of the injection-seeded laser, which was measured by optical heterodyne technique. A method used to restrict the frequency jitter of the laser was discussed. The fluctuation of the laser frequency was reduced from 2.36 MHz (rms) to 1.07 MHz (rms) in 1 h by optimizing the voltage of the piezoelectric translator.
