Title: Passive Fe{sup 2+}:ZnSe single-crystal Q switch for 3-{mu}m lasers

Abstract

Passive Q-switching of 3-{mu}m lasers with the help of a Fe{sup 2+}:ZnSe single crystal is demonstrated. The 6-mJ, 50-ns giant pulses are obtained from a 2.9364-{mu}m Er:YAG laser by using this passive Q switch. (letters)
