Eye-safe actively Q-switched microchip laser with an electro-absorbing semiconductor modulator.

Abstract

We present what we believe to be the first actively Q -switched monolithic microchip laser with a wavelength of 1.55 microm that uses an electro-absorbing semiconductor modulator. At an absorbed pump power of 130 mW and a switching voltage of 2.2 V, the laser produces 470-nJ pulses at a repetition rate of 10 kHz. The output is a stable single longitudinal… (More)
