A transformer-driven electrooptic Q-switching technique and associated circuit are described which eliminate the requirement to switch high voltages and which greatly simplify circuitry. It is shown that this technique provides remarkably good lasing efficiency even when the transformer risetime is twice as slow as the laser pulse buildup time.
