Using a novel configuration of two coupled resonators, electrooptic Q -switching of CW-pumped Nd3+:YAG lasers has been investigated. This technique yields two linearly polarized output beams with practically all the power contained in one beam. In the case of strong pumping, e.g., using high repetition rate flashlamp pumping, the optimization of mirror reflectivity leads to a single-resonator configuration.
