|Abstract:||Q-switched Er:glass lasers that are injection seeded by a cw master laser are useful for eye-safe (1.535μm)coherent laser radars (CLR). Previously, we used an injection seeded, Q-switched, lamp-pumped Er:glass laser, obtaining velocity measurements of a hard target with a single shot resolution of about 1ms–1 . The transmitted pulse energy was only about 1mJ however, which severely restricted the range of the radar. We shall describe the development and performance of a new, Q-switched, diode-pumped Er:Yb:glass slab laser that can produce gain-switched, transform limited, TEM00 pulses. The spectral content of the laser output, suitable for CLR will be discussed.  A.McGrath, et al.: Injection-seeded, single frequency, Q-switched Er:glass laser for remote sensing, Appl.
