Abstract
We describe the mechanism for the nonreciprocal behavior of a traveling-wave A-O modulator. 20 mw single-frequency output for 200 mw pump and 4 (mu) j/pulse are obtained in a ring laser with A-O Q-switch. Finally, we describe a design of monolithic, planar, diode-pumped, single-frequency ring laser with A-O Q-switch.
