Abstract

Using both acoustic-optic (AO) Q-switch and GaAs saturable absorber, a diode-pumped doubly Q-switched Nd:GdVO4/KTP green laser is realized. This laser can generate a shorter and more symmetric pulse in comparison with purely AO and passively Q-switched lasers. In the meantime, the rate equations describing the operation of a diode-pumped, AO and GaAs doubly Q-switched Nd:GdVO4/KTP green laser are introduced. These equations are solved numerically and the dependence of pulse width on incident pump power is obtained. The numerical solutions are in agreement with the experimental results.
