Abstract

We demonstrate a high-power passively Q-switched and mode-locked Nd:YVO4 laser with a Cr4+:YAG saturable absorber. 2.7 W of average power with an 18-kHz Q-switched repetition rate was generated at a 12.5-W pump power. The peak power of a single pulse near the maximum of the Q-switched envelope was greater than 100 kW.
