Abstract
We report the operation of a passively Q-switched diode end pumped Nd3+:KGW laser, which was obtained by using a Cr4+:YAG or Cr4+:GGG saturable absorbers in the multi-kHz frequency domain. The free-running (with maximum slope efficiency of 46%), and the passively Q-switched characteristics of Nd:KGW were investigated and the use of Nd:KGW as microlasers will be discussed.
