Continuous-wave mode-locked operation of a 2-microm Tm: YAG laser is demonstrated. Stable, transform-limited pulses of 35-ps duration have been generated at a repetition rate of 300 MHz, with an average output power of 70 mW.
Layered medium comprised of metal-dielectrics constituents is of much interest in the field of metamaterials. Here we introduce a novel analysis approach based on competing coupled structures of plasmonic gaps (MIM) and slabs (IMI) for the detailed comprehension of the band structure of periodic metal-dielectric stacks. This approach enables the rigorous… (More)
A circular zero-time-averaged power component, coupling the forward (dielectric) and backward (metal) power channels of Surface Plasmon Polaritons (SPPs), is shown to be the core ingredient for the slow-light characteristic of SPPs at the surface plasmon frequency, for both a lossless and lossy metal. Additional slow-light regimes emerging in configurations… (More)
Loss is known to be detrimental for achieving perfect focusing with the passive perfect lens designs suggested thus far, and it is believed to pose a fundamental barrier. We show that perfect lensing can be achieved with actual lossy left-handed metamaterials, without a need for gain or nonlinearity. The proposed loss-immune perfect lens is composed of a… (More)
Room-temperature, continuous-wave laser action at 2.3 microm corresponding to the (3)H(4)-(3)H(5) transition in Tm(3+)- doped YLF is achieved. Output powers of 200 mW and a slope efficiency of 15% have been obtained for a pump power of 2 W at 0.78 microm. In addition, continuous tunability of this laser from 2.20 to 2.46 microm is obtained.
