Q-switching is a technique that involves the use of Q-switch crystals to control the output of a laser. By modulating the intracavity losses, the Q factor of the laser resonator is adjusted, resulting in the generation of short, high-energy light pulses. This technique is commonly used in various applications, including medical procedures, material processing, and scientific research.
Q-switch crystals play a crucial role in the Q-switching process. These crystals, such as the spinel Q switch, are used to modulate the intracavity losses of the laser. By adjusting the Q factor, these crystals allow for the generation of short, high-energy light pulses.
At OST Photonics, we offer a range of passive Q-switch crystals. Unlike active Q-switching, passive Q-switching does not require external control. Instead, it relies on the saturation of absorption in the Q-switching crystals. This results in a simpler, more compact system with fewer components, making it a popular choice for many applications.
Passive Q-switching offers several advantages over other methods. The passive Q switch laser is simpler and more compact, with fewer components required. This makes it a cost-effective solution for many applications. Additionally, passive Q-switching can generate high peak power pulses, making it ideal for applications that require high energy output.
Q-switching has a wide range of applications across various industries. In the medical field, Q-switching is used in procedures such as laser eye surgery and tattoo removal. In the manufacturing industry, Q-switching is used for material processing, including cutting, drilling, and engraving. In scientific research, Q-switching is used to study various phenomena, including light-matter interactions and nonlinear optics.
