Paper Abstract

A colliding enhance resonator (CER) was used in a passively Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. Cr4+:YAG crystal and color centered LiF:F2- crystal were selected as Q-switched elements. A high energy and high stability single Q-switched pulse was obtained. Energy stability is as high as 99% which is comparable to an actively Q-switched laser. Output energy has increased 40~60% compared to a conventional resonator (CR) Q-switched laser at the same condition. Numerical calculation has shown the excellent agreement with experimental result.
