Abstract
This work presents a mode-controlled quasi-CW resonator design based on an Nd:YLF crystal. Up to 47% optical efficiency was obtained and, by passively Q-switching the laser, 209 kW of peak power at 1053 nm was obtained. The new resonator design is capable of delivering 2.3 mJ and 11 ns pulses in a very compact, simple and lightweight set-up.
