    Abstract

    The use of V:YAG laser crystals for passive switching of diode-pumped Yb:KGW lasers was discussed. The laser emission at two wavelengths was obtained by Raman conversion of fundamental laser emission in the laser crystal. A hemispherical laser cavity of a Yb:KGW crystal chip was employed for the laser experiments. Raman conversion of the fundamental emission in the laser crystal was observed in the Q-switch mode.
