Generating ultra-short pulses from a Q-switched microchip laser

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding contributionpeer-review


A numerical model, based on the laser rate equations, was used to predict the performance of passively Q-switched microchip lasers. The resulting designs were realised and shown to exhibit pulses of ~ 140 ps duration.
