Abstract

A diode-pumped 1.34 mum Nd:YVO4 laser passively Q-switched with PbS quantum dots doped glass is presented. An average output power of 24 mW with a Q-switching efficiency of 13% and a Q-switched pulse width of 15 ns was obtained. A four level spectroscopic model of a PbS quantum dots doped glass saturable absorber is applied to numerically simulate passively Q-switched Nd:YVO4 laser operation. It has been shown that for the simulation of passive Q-switching of 1.3 mum Nd:YVO4 lasers with PbS doped glasses as the saturable absorbers, it is necessary to take into account intensity dependence of bleaching relaxation times.
