Broadband nonlinear optical conversion of a high-energy diode-pumped picosecond laser Academic Article uri icon


  • We report on a high-energy picosecond pulse generation out made of a simple and inexpensive all-solid-state diode-pumped oscillator. The system produces 200 nJ, 7-ps pulses with an average power as high as 3 W, using laser components with a total price of all opto-mechanical components of about $10,000. High-power broadband continuum generation is demonstrated in a specially selected single mode GeO2-doped fiber. 2003 Published by Elsevier B.V.
