Abstract
The dynamics of electron localization in amorphous media are of considerable interest to fundamental studies of electron transport as well as to applications in picosecond optoelectronics. Since efficient photoionization at 10-12 s usually requires at least Mwatt power densities, we describe two complementary routes to obtaining ultrafast, high power laser pulses. We first report some novel applications of the optical Kerr effect in CS2 for picosecond pulse generation in ruby and pulse gating on the femtosecond time scale, and then describe an amplified, subpicosecond, synchronously mode-locked tunable dye laser system. Recent results on photoionization and electron trapping in liquids and clusters are then discussed.
