Abstract:

Solid state laser systems have been demonstrated using CrYAG crystals. CW, regenerative modelocking and self-modelocking have been achieved with pulses as short as 120 femtoseconds being transform limited. Thin film amplifiers based on CrForsterite on glass using a sol-gel deposition technique were fabricated and tested. Other techniques such as nanocrystal embedded in an index matching matrix made of polymers were explored. CrForsterite, CrYAG, Solid state lasers, Waveguide amplifiers
