Output pulse energy normalized to the saturation energy of the gain medium versus the total nonsaturable losses, for parasitic losses lp=γq0 and two different fixed initial gains, obtained from the rate equations (A1)–(A3). The solid curves are plotted for the same values of γ as the dashed ones, but with lower initial gain. As soon as there are nonvanishing parasitic losses, maximum pulse energy is achieved for values of l close to l ≈ q0 ≈ gi/2.
