Tunable repetition rate VECSEL for resonant acoustic-excitation of nanostructures

Tunable repetition rate VECSEL for resonant acoustic-excitation of nanostructures
Tunable repetition rate VECSEL for resonant acoustic-excitation of nanostructures

We report a passively mode-locked InGaAs-quantum well VECSEL, emitting a constant pulse train at an average output power of 18 mW and emission wavelength of 1035 nm, with a continuously tunable pulse repetitionfrequency (PRF) between 0.88 - 1.88 GHz. Pulse duration was 230 fs over 80% of that range. Here we propose a technique making use of the demonstrated VECSEL PRF tunability for a resonant frequency-domain pumpprobe spectroscopic technique for acoustic interrogation of nanostructures. Simulation of suitable GHz acoustic resonators to demonstrate this technique is described.

Abstract

We report a passively mode-locked InGaAs-quantum well VECSEL, emitting a constant pulse train at an average output power of 18 mW and emission wavelength of 1035 nm, with a continuously tunable pulse repetitionfrequency (PRF) between 0.88 - 1.88 GHz. Pulse duration was 230 fs over 80% of that range. Here we propose a technique making use of the demonstrated VECSEL PRF tunability for a resonant frequency-domain pumpprobe spectroscopic technique for acoustic interrogation of nanostructures. Simulation of suitable GHz acoustic resonators to demonstrate this technique is described.
