Abstract

Simultaneous mode locking and Q switching is accomplished in a diode-pumped Nd:YVO 4+ /GaAs laser. The average output power is ~2.0 W at 10.6-W absorbed pump power, and the repetition rate of the Q-switched pulse is ~120 kHz. The mode-locked pulse inside the Q-switched pulse has a repetition rate of ~148 MHz, and its average duration is estimated to be ~100 ps.
