Abstract

Low-cost scanning MEMS micro-mirrors were incorporated within the cavities of Nd:based laser systems to control the output beam characteristics. Successful Q-switching was obtained from these solid-state intra-cavity MEMS lasers resulting in pulse durations of 220ns and peak powers of 13.2W at a wavelength of 1064nm.
