15 February 2018 Large pulse-energy VECSELs
Author Affiliations +
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.
