The main purpose of the research was to implement the mode of generating ultrashort picosecond duration pulses using a rapidly relaxing dye and the method of cavity losses discharge of еру pulsed solid-state lasers with a passive gate. We calculated the generation kinetics and determined the optimal conditions modulation mode in combination with passive gate enlightenment. We implemented the method for the YAG:Nd3+ laser, for which we obtained the intense ultrashort pulses with duration of ≈ 12 ps, corresponding to the maximum width of the emission spectrum of the nonselective resonator.
