Abstract

We demonstrate a stable Q-switched single-longitudinal-mode (SLM) Nd:YAG laser using a volume Bragg grating as the output coupler. The reflective volume Bragg grating, serving as a longitudinal selector and passive frequency stabilizer, effectively eliminates the mode hopping effect of the laser. The maximum output energy of the SLM obtained from the current experimental setup is 18.5 mJ. The maximum separation of frequencies is significantly less than the longitudinal mode separation, indicating that a stable SLM laser is achieved.
