The study of transient behaviour of a pulse pumped solid state laser system has assumed importance on account of SLM generation by self-seeding with the pre-lase signal. This paper reports on the observations of seed pulses for two different Nd: YAG laser rods, one with anti-reflection coating (AR) on end faces and the other without. The latter displays single longitudinal mode behaviour in each of the relaxation pulse train while the former displays multimode behaviour. Our observations are well explained by the ‘active etalon concept’ introduced earlier.

Operational characteristics of a dual gain single cavity Nd:YVO4 laser have been investigated. With semiconductor diode laser pump power of 2 W, 800 mW output was obtained with a slope efficiency of 49%. Further, by changing the relative orientation of the two crystals the polarization characteristics of the output could be varied. In particular by keeping the two Nd:YVO4 crystals with their
