Abstract
We report on measurements of transient and steady-state pulse characteristics of an acousto- optically mode-locked titanium-doped sapphire laser. During the pulse evolution, oscillations in the pulse width and pulse energy are found. A steady state is reached after about 40 to 60 microsecond(s) . The steady-state pulse width is strongly influenced by the mode-locking loss as well as the intracavity bandwidth. Shortest pulses of typically 15 ps are obtained. The experiment is compared with results of a simple computer simulation.
