Reports outline applied lasers and optics study findings from University of Kaiserslautern
October 12th, 2008
"This paper reports the generation of fs light pulses by a passively mode-locked InGaAs master oscillator power amplifier (MOPA) system," investigators in Kaiserslautern, Germany report.
"The laser system generates chirped pulses with 6.2 ps duration, a center wavelength of 922 nm and 4 GHz repetition rate. Pulse compression by an external grating compressor reduces the pulse duration to 580 fs," wrote T. Ulm and colleagues, University of Kaiserslautern.
The researchers concluded: "The average power of the compressed pulses of 851 mW corresponds to a peak power of 366 W."
Ulm and colleagues published their study in Applied Physics B -...
