A new laser material, Nd:YAGxYSAG(1−x), has produced efficient Q-switched laser operation with energies exceeding 100 mJ per pulse at 944.1 nm. This represents one of the few lasers to be designed to operate at a specific, user preselected wavelength without the use of intraresonator tuning elements. Material design, Q-switched lasing and single pass amplifier results are presented.
