Coupled cavity modelocking of a Nd:YAG laser using second harmonic generation

Barr, J.R.M., Hanna, D.C. and Hughes, D.W. (1989) Coupled cavity modelocking of a Nd:YAG laser using second harmonic generation At Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics (CLEO '89), United States. 24 - 28 Apr 1989.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Recently it has been demonstrated that intracavity second harmonic generation (SHG) In a Nd:YAG laser can lead to mode locking with pulse durations of ~ 100 ps at 532 nm. Other work has shown that nonlinear processes in an external coupled cavity can effectively mode lock a laser. These two mechanisms are combined to mode lock a Nd:YAG laser using SHG as the nonlinearity
