Nd:YAG lasers

Two diode-pumped Nd:YAG lasers are available that offer stable short pulses. The Cirrus-2000 Q-switched Nd:YAG laser has a less than 100-MH¥bandwidth around the 1064-nm wavelength while emitting pulses shorter than 60 ns with more than 200-µJ energies at repetition rates of u¥to 1 kHz. The ASD-1000 diode-pumped Nd:YAG laser is modelocked, Q-switched, and cavity-dumped, yielding pulses as short as 100 ps, with energies u¥to 100 µJ and repetition rates as high as 1 kHz.
