Abstract

We report a diode-pumped self-Q-switched 1064-nm Cr,Nd:YAG laser with pulse duration in the range of 16?18 ns. The maximum average output power up to 7 W, corresponding to a slope efficiency of 33%, is obtained in a simple and compact linear cavity by using a plane-concave output coupler with a transmittance of 15%. The laser operates at TEM00 mode with a pump power of 14.2 W.
