This paper describes the development of an actively mode-locked and Q -switched (AMQ) Nd:YAG oscillator system that generates a single pulse at 1.06 μm in the range of 100 ps to 1 ns, with energy of \sim 250 \mu J, and with good stability and reliability. A stable single axial mode Q -switched oscillator is also described that generates a long smooth pulse out of which pulses in the ns range are sliced. Synchronization of these two oscillators is also discussed.
