Abstract
To have a complex view on giant pulse generation, a more precise computer model of the build up Q-switch pulse in solid-state laser was realized. As a time starting point of the rate equation calculation, the moment of a flashlamp trigger was chosen. A system of three or four main differential rate equations describes the energy transfer from a pumping source - capacitor to an output giant pulse. Two laser active media, i.e. ruby and alexandrite, were examined with this model. A passive Q-switch ruby laser needs solving of the system of four differential equations; three differential equations gave the computer results for electro-optically Q-switched alexandrite laser.
