Passively-Q-switched microchip laser and passively-mode-locked Nd:LSB laser demonstrated by using an A-FPSA

The new laser material Nd:LSB [Nd:LaSc3(BO3)4] has several interesting characteristics as compared to standard Nd3+-doped materials like YAG and YLF.1,2 It has a broad absorption bandwidth (3 nm), a short absorption length (110 µm for a 25% doping), and low internal losses—features that are important for efficient single-frequency operation of a microchip laser and for diode pumping. The broad gain bandwidth of 4 nm allows, in principle, for mode locking with sub-picosecond pulses with potentially high output power. By using an antiresonant Fabry-Perot saturable absorber3,4 (A-FPSA), we demonstrated both the passive Q-switching of a 400-µm-thick microchip laser and the passive mode locking of a Brewster-cut crystal in a standard 240-MHz cavity.
