Abstract
An optimization model of laser diode (LD) pumped, passively Q-switched, intracavity frequency doubled solid state laser was proposed. The output energy is maximized by optimizing the length of doubling crystal and the initial transmission of saturable absorber. It provides a design criteria of a compact laser source for micro pulse lidar (MPL). The pulse repetition frequency (PRF) is controlled to meet the requirement of MPL. Numerical simulation examples are present to shows the relationship between the output energy and optimized parameters.
