Abstract

Saturation of near infrared absorption was investigated recently in tetravalent chromium doped garnets and forsterite.1 These systems were shown to be effective solid state saturable absorbers for neodymium lasers. In this paper we report on vanadium doped YAG as a new solid state passive shutter for near infrared laser systems.
