Abstract

A passively Q-switched operation of a diode-pumped Nd:YVO4 laser is demonstrated, in which a GaAs film is used as the saturable absorber as well as the output coupler. At the pump power of 10 W, a stable fundamental-mode average power output of 2.11 W was obtained with a pulse duration of 140 ns, pulse energy of 76 ?J and pulse repetition rate of 28 kHz. A theoretical analysis that describes the passive Q-switching dynamics of GaAs is presented.
