ABSTRACT
Examines the use of Cr[sup 4+]:Gd[sub 3]Sc[sub 2]Ga[sub 3]O[sub 12] broad-band saturable absorbers as passive Q-switch for Cr[sup 3+]:LiCaAlF[sub 6] solid-state laser. Absorption spectrum of the saturable absorber; Components of the laser resonator; Process for improving the energy storage efficiency of saturable absorbers.

    We report for the first time pulsed laser operation of the Yb-doped Li6Y(BO3)3 (Yb-LYB) crystal in the nanosecond as well as in the femtosecond regime. Pulse durations as short as 355 fs have been obtained in passively mode-locked operation and pulse energies up to 140 μJ in Q-switched operation.
