Er, Yb:GdAl3(BO3)4 laser passively Q-switched by MBE-grown Cr:ZnS thin films

Abstract

Q-switched erbium lasers emitting in the 1.5–1.6 μm spectral region are widely used in laser rangefmders and LIBS systems. These applications require compact and low-cost sources of laser pulses with high average output power. Passive Q-switching is one of the most simple and reliable method to achieve the abovementioned requirements. Er, Yb:GdAl<inf>3</inf… (More)
