We have achieved stable Fourier-transform-limited single-axial-mode operation of an unstable-resonator Nd:YAG oscillator. The 10-Hz repetition-rate, 150-mJ, 9-nsec Q-switched Nd:YAG source operated with a measured 50-MHz bandwidth at ±5-MHz frequency jitter when injected with a low-power single-frequency pulse from a TEM00-mode Nd:YAG source.
