1 September 2004 Cavity dumping with a diode-pumped femtosecond laser oscillator
Author Affiliations +
We report on a diode pumped tunable Yb:glass femtosecond laser oscillator with electro-optical cavity dumping. Pulses with energies exceeding 400 nJ and peak powers of above 1MW were generated at repetition frequencies as high as 200kHz. We discuss two issues, the possibility of enhanced stability and spiking suppression by implementation of an active feedback technology. This laser forms a compact light source for various scientific and industrial applications like micromachining.
