A continuously pumped Nd:YLF regenerative amplifier has been developed that can amplify 40-psec pulses at a repetition rate of greater than 10 kHz, with an average power in excess of 5 W. Pulse energies are as high as 2.0 mJ at 3 kHz and 640 microJ at 10.5 kHz. The limitation on the amplifier repetition rate that is associated with piezoelectric ringing in(More)
Above-band-gap picosecond pulses are used to generate holographically high-frequency, coherent, surface acoustic modes on semiconductor surfaces. Optical diffraction from the surface acoustics is in superposition to a free-carrier phase grating that acts as an amplifying cross term in the diffraction process. The detection limits are of the order of 10(-4)(More)

A stable, closely-controlled, high-intensity, single-bunch beam will be required for the SLAC Linear Collider. The characteristics of shortpulse, low-intensity beams in the SLAC linac have been studied. A new, high-intensity thermionic gun, subharmonic buncher and S-band buncherl accelerator section were installed recently at SLAC. With these components, up(More)
We consider the problem of discovering descriptive models of large, multidimensional datasets containing quantitative and qualitative data. We consider desirable properties of such models, namely accuracy, completeness and simplicity. We use information content as a way of quantifying these properties and analyzing how well a model captures the important,(More)
We demonstrate reliable operation of a stable synchronously pumped dye amplifier for femtosecond pulses from a passively mode-locked dye laser. Conversion efficiencies of 8% are obtained with output powers of 40 mW and 50-fs pulse widths at repetition rates of up to 10 kHz with pulse energy stability of 3% rms. Synchronization is achieved by driving the(More)
