  • A stabilized mode-locked Nd:YAlG laser using electronic feedback

    Publication Year: 1973, Page(s):3 - 8

    Techniques for constructing a stable mode-locked Nd:YAlG laser source suitable for long term unattended operation are described. These techniques involve the use of two types of electronic feedback loops-the oscillator loop and the servo loop. An additional auxiliary loop to provide for long term operation is described and demonstrated. The detuning properties of the mode-locked laser, using both ... View full abstract»

  • Phase matching in second-harmonic generation using artificial periodic structures

    Publication Year: 1973, Page(s):9 - 17

    The use of artificial periodic structures, consisting of spatial modulations of the linear and nonlinear susceptibilities of a nonlinear optical medium, to achieve phase matching in second-harmonic generation is analyzed. Dispersion relations and approximate formulas for the second-harmonic fields generated under various conditions are obtained and used to evaluate the experimental situation. View full abstract»

    A solution is given for the parametric interaction of two traveling waves (upsilon_{k, k}) and (omega, k) where(upsilon_{k, k}) ll (omega, K). The strong pump wave at frequency υkis not affected but modulates the index of refraction for the weak wave at ω. The solution is for an arbitrary initial time dependence of the weak wave and can describ... View full abstract»

    A dispersive quartz prism is used to couple the total second harmonic generated in both directions by an internal cavity frequency doubler. The study shows that the dispersion of air and mirror reflection phase shifts can be compensated for by a slight nonphase match condition in the doubler. View full abstract»

  • The effect of an electric field on the active medium in a dye laser

    We investigate the effect of subjecting the active medium (rhodamine 6G in methanol) in a dye laser to an applied electric field. When the optical configuration is for broad-band output, an overall broadening of the output proportional to the square of the field is observed. No shift is obtained. The magnitude of this effect (7.4 times 10^{-8}cm-1(V/cm)-2) is much ... View full abstract»

  • A theoretical analysis of etched grating couplers for integrated optics

    Grating couplers provide an attractive method for the excitation of optical thin-film waveguides. We present here a perturbation analysis of etched or deposited grating couplers based upon both the transmission line and the Green's Function approaches, which predict the coupling efficiency, the output radiation beamwidth, the angular dependence of excitation, and the intensities of the other order...

  • Improving the pumping efficiency of a Nd3+glass laser using dyes

    Publication Year: 1973, Page(s):43 - 46
    Cited by:  Papers (13)

    The efficiency of a Nd3+glass laser pumped by a xenon flash lamp was improved by circulating fluorescent dyes around the laser rod. The dyes used here absorb in the spectral region in which the neodymium ions do not absorb and fluoresce strongly at one of the pump bands of Nd3+. This results in a more efficient utilisation of the flashlamp light output. These dyes also preven... View full abstract»
