abstract

Synchronized Q-switching between quasi-three-level and four-level lasers is interesting for sum-frequency generation into the blue and ultraviolet. We report, for the first time, stable synchronized Q-switching between a quasi-three-level laser at 946 nm and a four-level laser at 1064 nm in an all passive approach. While timing jitter of the individual freerunning lasers were on the order of 10 μs, the relative timing jitter, defined as one standard-deviation of the experimental data, was only 9 ns between the two synchronized pulses. The minimum delay between the two pulses was 64 ns during stable operation, which gave a 79% temporal overlap when normalized against the zero-delay scenario. Preliminary results show promise for non-linear frequency conversion, which could lead to high power pulsed blue and ultraviolet lasers.
