Abstract

A diode-pumped Yb:YCOB laser at 1086  nm is passively Q switched by using InGaAs quantum wells as saturable absorbers and utilizing the Bragg mirror structure as an output coupler. With an absorbed pump power of 9.2  W the laser produces pulses of 100  ms duration with average pulse energy of as much as 165μJ at a pulse repetition rate of 7  kHz.
