Synchronous pumping of an optical parametric oscillator using an amplified quasi-cw pump envelope

Butterworth, S.D., Clarkson, W.A., Moore, N., Friel, G.J. and Hanna, D.C. (1996) Synchronous pumping of an optical parametric oscillator using an amplified quasi-cw pump envelope In Proceedings of Advanced Solid State Lasers (ASSL). Optical Society of America..

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Pulse-slicing from a cw laser output followed by high gain amplification can produce quasi-cw pulses at power levels well in excess of those available from large frame cw lasers. Mode-locked pulse trains with an envelope of 10µs duration and at 2kHz repetition rate are amplified by a factor of 20 to give 5 Watts of envelope average power. These power levels allow efficient single-pass frequency doubling and subsequent pumping of a lithium triborate optical parametric oscillator
