Abstract

A novel acousto-optic switch operation by a simple laser-diode pumped acousto-optic, Q-switched, ytterbium-doped, double-clad fiber laser is reported. Stable compressed Q-switched sub- 40 ns pulses with a beam quality factor ( M 2 = 2 ) are achieved at the repetition rate of 1 50 kHz . Q-switched pulses of 20 μ J pulse energy and 35 ns pulse width are obtained at the repetition rate of 50 kHz . Finally, a reasonable explanation of the novel Q-switched operation is presented.
