The performance and charactersics of various Q-switched fibre lasers are examined. All results presented are for laser diode pumped systems, emphasizing the practicality of the Q-switched fibre laser. Operation at 0.94, 1.06, 1.09 and 1.57Am wavelengths are covered. The results presented show that Q-switching is currently limited by the performance of the modulator. Theoretical modelling of the process allows us to determine the required properties for a modulator and in addition to predict the expected performance of Q-switched fibre lasers under different conditions.
