We report on the simulation of cavity-dumped semiconductor disk lasers utilizing an intracavity Pockels cell. This technique is used to generate high peak power pulses with pulse lengths of nominally one cavity round-trip. These results are compared to experiments demonstrated using InGaAs quantum-well gain region operating at approximately 1 μm to generate micro-Joule level nanosecond pulses.
Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
