- Mode-locking of a high power, 888 nm pumped Nd:YVO4 laser using nonlinear polarization rotation via Type I second harmonic generationChristoph Schäfer
Photonik Zentrum Kaiserslautern eV, Kaiserslautern, Germany
Opt Lett 38:160-2. 2013..Self-starting, reliable mode-locking has been achieved at a high average output power of 20.6 W and a pulse duration of 7.3 ps. Furthermore, transform limited pulses down to 2.7 ps have been demonstrated at 9.9 W...
- Parametric Kerr lens mode-locked, 888 nm pumped Nd:YVO4 laserChristoph Schäfer
Photonik Zentrum Kaiserslautern e V, Kohlenhofstr 10, 67663 Kaiserslautern, Germany
Opt Lett 36:2674-6. 2011..The nonlinear loss modulations are mainly provided by a soft aperture mechanism in the gain medium. A high average output power up to 15.4 W at 10.8 ps pulse duration and short pulses down to 5.7 ps at 11.4 W have been achieved...
