Abstract

Calculate the relaxation oscillation frequency of a Nd:YAG laser when it is operated twice above threshold assuming a cavity length L=20 cm, a Nd:YAG rod of length l=0.8 cm, a refractive index of YAG n=1.82, an upper state laser lifetime τ=230 μs, and an overall round-trip logarithmic loss γ=2%.
