Low threshold operation of a waveguide CH4 Raman laser at 1.54µm

Shepherd, D.P., Hanna, D.C., Mussett, S.G. and Pacheco, M.T.T. (1987) Low threshold operation of a waveguide CH4 Raman laser at 1.54µm IEE Proceedings J: Optoelectronics, 134, (3), pp. 187-189. (doi:10.1049/ip-j:19870033).

Record type: Article


A convenient source of high-power (~20 kW) stable mode-locked pulses at 1.54 µm, suitable for pulse-compression studies in the negative group-velocity-dispersion region of optical fibres, is described. The source is based on a capillary-waveguide Raman laser, using CH4 gas, and pumped by a mode-locked Q-switched CW Nd:YAG laser. Initial results for a synchronously pumped Raman laser are also presented.
