Diode-pumped Nd:YVO4 and Nd:KGW lasers passively Q-switched with PbS-quantum dot-doped phosphate glass were demonstrated. For the Nd:YVO4 laser, pulses 110 ns in duration with a 13% Q-switching efficiency were obtained. The absorption recovery time of the PbS-doped glass was measured to be 27 +/- 4 ps. Some recommendations for more efficient use of PbS-doped glasses for Q-switching of diode-pumped lasers are suggested on the basis of our analysis.
