Abstract We have constructed a picosecond laser system with two Q-switched, mode-locked Nd:YAG lasers synchronously pumping two dye lasers. The Nd:YAG lasers are driven from the same rf source, and therefore produce synchronized pulse trains. Cross-correlation measurements of the two Nd:YAG lasers and of the two dye lasers are described, and the mode-locked pulses are found to be correlated to a high degree. Timing jitter between dye-laser pulses was determined to be ca. 50 ps. The phase… CONTINUE READING
