Abstract
A high-efficiency, high-repetition-rate burst-mode 1064 nm laser under pulsed 878.6 nm laser diode pumping is demonstrated. Pulses at repetition rates ranging from 10 kHz to 100 kHz are produced during the time period of 1 ms pumping duration by using an acousto-optical Q-switch. The maximum pulse burst energy of 44 mJ at 10 kHz is obtained at the incident pump power of 108.5 mJ, yielding an optical-to-optical efficiency of 40.5%. The shortest pulse width at 10 kHz is 9.4 ns at the maximum pump energy of 108.5 mJ. The peak powers are estimated to be ~468.1 kW and 30.1 kW at 10 kHz and 100 kHz in the burst-mode oscillator.
