Objective: Q-switching circuit for Nd:YAG laser with Cr:YAG module
Q-switching of a laser makes it possible to generate short, high-energy pulses. It works by controlling the laser threshold by increasing or decreasing resonator losses. You are to implement a passive Q-switching circuit with the help of a Cr:YAG module and then record the laser pulsing over time. The energy of the pulses can be calculated from the average power and the frequency with which they are repeated.
