Title: Passive Q-switching of a 1.66-{mu}m Er{sup 3+}:YAlO{sub 3} laser by means of a Cr{sup 2+}:ZnSe crystal

Abstract

The passive Q-switching of 1.66-{mu}m Er{sup 3+}:YAlO{sub 3} lasers with the help of some saturable absorbers is studied. Giant 200-ns pulses are generated by using a Cr{sup 2+}:ZnSe crystal as a saturable absorber. (control of laser radiation parameters)
