Abstract. A mini-laser with passive Q-switch and an active output coupler based on Fabry — Perot interferometer is investigated experimentally. It is shown, that the use of active Fabry — Perot interferometer as the output coupler allows for control over temporal characteristics of generated laser pulses.
