Abstract
Passive Q-switching of 1.3 micrometers neodymium lasers with Nd2+:SrF2 and V3+:YAG crystalline saturable absorbers are studied. Giant pulses up to 5 mJ energy and 40 ns duration were obtained. Efficient Raman shifting of the 1.3 micrometers pulses of passively Q-switched lasers to 1.55 micrometers wavelength are realized in Ba(NO3)2 crystal.
