Abstract
We demonstrated a passively Q-switched Nd:YAG laser operating at 1.319 μm using a transmission-type single-wall carbon nanotube (SWCNT) as the saturable absorber. This is the first report on using SWCNT as a Q-switcher for 1.319 μm Nd:YAG laser in a side-pumped configuration. A maximum output power of 780 mW was obtained with 1.15-μs pulse duration and 42.7-kHz repetition rate.
