Abstract
In the present paper we report about experimental investigation of acousto-optical mode locking in various types of lasers: gas, solid-state and dye. The theoretical description which takes into account the amplifying process of short pulses in resonant active medium had been carried out. Experimentally the pulse location inside the temporal mode-locker `window' and its shape as a function of both active medium gain and the resonator length detuning have been done. The pulse shape comprises satellite(s) following the main pulse. The number of the satellites with their relative amplitude and spacing from the main pulse was also one of the subjects of investigation.
