We demonstrate a core-pumped Q-switched thulium-doped fiber laser system with fast tunability capability over 100 nm without any movable part. With up to 7 kW peak power in a diffraction-limited beam, this source is well adapted for pumping a frequency agile mid-IR parametric oscillator or amplifier based on Quasi-Phase-Match single-period crystals.
We report on the compensation of the linear anisotropy of phase in a vertical-external-cavity surface-emitting laser from 21 to 0.5 mrad with an intracavity PLZT electro-optical ceramic. It allows dynamic and accurate control of the laser linear anisotropy, as well as dynamic control of the laser polarization eigenstates. At the birefringence compensation… (More)
This paper presents a method to monitor audio and video quality in the context of a digital broadcasting network. Because of bandwidth limitations, most existing methods cannot be applied. A method based on the evaluation of several of the impairments typically encountered in digital MPEG audio and video signals is proposed. The method has also been… (More)
