Abstract

An electro-optically Q-switched pulsed laser at 1.34 μm with a repetition rate of 100 kHz applying optically active langasite (La3Ga5SiO14) crystal has been reported. With Nd:YVO4 as laser crystal, the electro-optically Q-switched pulsed lasers were obtained with the maximum repetition rate of 100 kHz, maximum average output power of 2.42 W, and a minimum pulse width of 2.4 ns. Based on the theory of rate equations, the optimal pulse energy of the electro-optical Q-switching could be calculated. The experimental results have been found to be matched well with the theoretical calculations. To the best of our knowledge, this work presents the highest repetition rate and shortest pulse width which are achieved by an electric-optic LGS Q-switching at the wavelength of 1.34 μm, and it enriches the material categories for generating the high repetition rate pulsed laser.
