Abstract

We present a Nd:YAG-laser simultaneously emitting pulse-structures on microsecond, nanosecond and picosecond timescales. Within a millisecond pump pulse a non-linear SBS-mirror generates several Q-switch pulses. Acusto-optic loss modulation leads to stabilization of the inherent SBS-mode-locking.
