Abstract

We report on the origin of an acousto-optic Raman-Nath self-modulation found in a broad-area Nd:YAG single-shot laser. Operating the laser device under vacuum conditions suppresses the spectral splitting associated with acousto-optic modulation by the shock waves produced by the discharge of the pumping flash lamps. This splitting is reproduced by a general class B laser model that takes into account the dynamical density grating generated by a stationary acoustic radial wave.
