Abstract

By modulating the pump current, we developed a passively Q-switched diode-pumped all-solid-state laser with a repetition rate stabilized up to 10^(-7). It was experimentally demonstrated that the stability could sustain for an arbitrarily long time. Moreover, the stabilized repetition rates which were synchronized with different modulating frequencies were tuneable in a wide range, by adjusting the period of the pumping cycle only. The output single-pulse energy was also stabilized, which was independent on the pump power after reaching a saturable value.
