Passively Q-switched, closed-loop, self-adaptive resonator with a Nd:YAG as an active medium is presented. For maximal pump energy of 840 mJ Q-switched generation provided 5 pulse series with total energy of 120 mJ. Single pulse width was 24 ns. The beam quality parameter M2 was 1.6. Four-wave mixing and linear resonators were compared.
