A fiber pumped Er:YAG laser passively Q-switched by Co:ZnS and Cr:ZnSe crystals

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Passive Q-switching of an Er-fiber-Er:YAG hybrid laser was realized by Co:ZnS and Cr:ZnSe saturable absorbers enabling operation on the 1645 nm and 1617 nm lasing transitions respectively. Single- and multi-mode regimes of operation were analyzed experimentally and theoretically. © 2014 Astro Ltd.
