High-repetition-rate coherent femtosecond pulse amplification with an external passive optical cavity

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We demonstrate a general technique for enhancement of femtosecond pulses from a pulse train through their coherent buildup inside a high-finesse cavity. Periodic extraction of the intracavity pulse by means of a fast switch provides a net energy gain of 42 to >70 times for 38–58-fs pulse durations. Starting with an actively stabilized but otherwise standard mode-locked laser system, we demonstrate pulses of >200nJ energy.
