Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We experimentally prove that a Cr:YAG crystal exhibits saturable absorption in 639, 607, and 521 nm. We demonstrate passively Q-switched Pr:YLF lasers at these visible wavelengths using a Cr:YAG crystal for the first time.
