Abstract
High energy 1064 nm Q-switched laser output is obtained by LD vertical array end pumping Nd:YAG. Cylindrical lens are used for beam shaping of LD array for different divergence angle of fast and slow axis. Based on the theoretical simulation of fundamental mode radius using ABCD transfer matrix, the resonant cavity is optimized and curvature radius of cavity mirrors is determined. The intracavity power density is calculated according to the output laser pulse energy and transmittance of output coupling mirror is optimized under the condition that optical device is not damaged. 1064 nm laser with a maximum output of 110 mJ is generated under LD pump energy of 600 mJ, corresponding to optical conversion efficiency of 18.3%. The laser pulse width is 11 ns and divergence angle is 1.2 mrad. For saturation phenomenon of Q-switched laser output, LD temperature is adjusted to make wavelength deviate from absorption peak of Nd:YAG crystal. The parasitic oscillation, which affects the enhancement of Q-switched laser energy, can be effectively suppressed by reducing gain of pump end of laser medium, which provides an effective technical means for obtaining high energy end-pumped Q-switched laser.
