CLEO 1995: Diode-pumped, 6-mJ, Repetitively Q-switched Tm, Ho:YLF Laser for Clear Air Turbulence Detection

Andrew Finch and John H. Flint Schwartz Electro-Optics Inc., 45 Winthrop St., Concord MA 01742 Tel: 508 371 2299 Fax: 508 371 1265

We report on a diode-pumped, Thulium, Holmium:YLF ring laser which has produced over 4.5 W of CW power, 6 mJ of Q-switched pulse energy at a 100 Hz repetition rate, and over 3 mJ at 1 kHz repetition rate, all with a pump power of 14 W.
