Abstract

Compact, solid-state lasers emitting pico- and nanosecond pulses at 1.3 μm are of particular interest for telecommunications. This article discusses the results of using PbS-doped phosphate glass with the first excitonic peak at 1.3 μm as the SA for mode-locking of Nd:YAlO3 and Q-switching of Nd:YVO4 and Nd:KGd(WO4)2 lasers.
