Coupled cavity modelocking using nonlinear amplitude modulators

Coupled cavity modelocking using nonlinear amplitude modulators
Coupled cavity modelocking using nonlinear amplitude modulators
A straightforward analysis of the process by which nonlinear amplitude modulators in coupled cavities can lead to enhanced mode-locking is presented. The application of the theory is demonstrated by using second-harmonic generation in an external cavity to mode-lock a Nd:YAG laser yielding 30 ps pulses in a Q-switched and mode-locked pulse train.

Abstract

A straightforward analysis of the process by which nonlinear amplitude modulators in coupled cavities can lead to enhanced mode-locking is presented. The application of the theory is demonstrated by using second-harmonic generation in an external cavity to mode-lock a Nd:YAG laser yielding 30 ps pulses in a Q-switched and mode-locked pulse train.
