Abstract

Self-Q switching of a XeCl laser fitted with a resonator containing a stimulated-Brillouin-scattering phase-conjugate reflector is demonstrated. Q-switched laser pulses of 0.2-mJ energy and 2.5-ns duration and with a divergence close to the diffraction limit were obtained. A spectral narrowing of the two strong lines at 307.98 and at 308.19 nm exhibited by the XeCl laser spectrum was also observed.
