Abstract
We propose a simple interferometer-type-device that permits to produce a variable length (1 - 15 ns) rectangular laser pulses, starting from a long (approximately 10 - 50 ns) conventional pulse that is emitted by Q-switched Nd3+-doped laser. The system uses an one time switched electro-optical pulse division at the input laser pulse and cutting all-optically a rectangular part of one of the formed partial pulses by appropriate bleaching of interferometer (Fabry-Perot, Fizeau) which gap is an Cr4+:YAG plate. The precisely controlled bleaching is produced in reliable manner using the second partial pulses and an optical delay line. The length of the obtained rectangular pulse can be precisely varied between 1 and 15 ns. The technique proposed can be applied also for the other lasers.
