Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The issue of microlasers and micro-chip laser devices, passively Q-switched and doped with rare earth lasing ions is well established. The various components of such monolithic lasers are diffusion-bonded to the gain medium or alternatively separated. Laser performance of several configurations based on various hosting crystals, as well as analytical modeling of the Q-switching process will be presented and discussed. The effect of various types of Q-switches on the laser performance will be presented and analyzed.
