Low-cost cavity-dumped femtosecond Cr:LiSAF laser producing >100 nJ pulses.

Abstract

We report a low-cost cavity-dumped Cr:colquiriite laser for generating enhanced pulse energies. Four single-mode laser diodes were used to pump a Cr:LiSAF laser, which was mode locked with a semiconductor saturable absorber mirror. Cavity dumping at 10 kHz repetition rate, the laser generated approximately 120 fs pulses at approximately 825 nm, with 112 nJ… (More)
