Abstract
A master oscillator power amplifier (MOPA) is thought to be a suitable equipment to realize the power scaling for a diode pumped alkali laser (DPAL). In fact, the characteristics of a DPAL-MOPA system strongly depend on the central wavelengths of both a seed laser and a pump laser due to the extremely narrow nature linewidth for atomic alkali. In this report, a theoretical model of an end-pumped DPAL-MOPA system is first developed to study the influence of deviations in central wavelengths on the output features. Then, the relationship between the environmental parameters and the output linewidth as well as the output power is analyzed. The results reveal that the deviation in central wavelengths of both a seed laser and a pump LD will lead to a dramatic decrease of the output power for a DPAL-MOPA system. The conclusions are thought to be helpful for design of an end-pumped DPAL with high powers.
