A single-frequency 1645 nm pulsed laser with frequency stability close to 100 kHz was demonstrated. The laser oscillator is injection-seeded by a single-frequency narrow linewidth Er∶Y 3 Al 5 O 12 (Er:YAG) nonplanar ring oscillator and frequency stabilized by the modified Pound-Drever-Hall method. The pulse repetition rate can be set from 100 to 500 Hz with the frequency stability from 82.72 kHz to 134.44 kHz and pulse energy from 9.84 mJ to 19.55 mJ. To our knowledge, this is the best
