Abstract

Reported in the paper are two solid state saturable absorbers for the ruby laser, i.e., Cr4+:GSGG, and Dy2+:CaF2. An electro-optic Q-switched ruby laser was used for the bleaching measurements of these two saturable absorbers. For both the saturable absorber and the Q-switched laser systems, new models were applied. Numerical simulation, using the fourth-order Runge-Kutta method to solve for the solutions of the coupled rate equations, was used to describe the dynamics of Q-switching with satisfactory performance.
