Abstract:

A single short pulse of width less than the round-trip transit time of a transversely excited laser can be produced by means of simultaneously mode locking and cavity dumping of the laser. Using the above method, single pulses less than 4-nsec wide, with peak power greater than 10 kW have been produced from a TEA CO2 laser.
