Pulse shape model of Q-switched lasers

Jiang Yuan Zhang, Jian Quan Yao, Peng Wang

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A general approach describing the pulse shape and temporal width of Q-switched lasers was presented. From the characteristic equation, the pulse symmetry property and pulse width can be calculated for any given operating parameters, and the waveform of laser pulse can be reconstructed without solving the laser rate equations.
