Chapter 10: Intracavity Elements: Q-switching, SHG, and Single-Longitudinal-Mode Operation
In this chapter, three different types of diode-pumped laser operation are described. The first is repetitive Q-switching, which is useful for laser machining operations such as drilling or cutting, and is also used extensively in producing second harmonic generation (SHG). Intracavity cw SHG will also be reviewed. And finally, two techniques for producing diode-pumped single-longitudinal-mode laser output are explored.
