Differential gain and buildup dynamics of self-starting Kerr lens mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser without an internal aperture

Abstract

The small-signal differential gain was calculated from the measured average cw and Kerr lens mode-locked (KLM) output powers over the least-misalignment-sensitive region of a completely soft-aperturing, selfstarting KLM Ti:sapphire laser. The results indicate that the self-starting condition is reached with this laser operating near the center of the stable… (More)
