Laser cavity dumping using optical bistability Academic Article uri icon


  • In this paper we present a scheme for passive cavity dumping of a laser. The basic idea is to replace one of the laser mirrors with an optically bistable element. The cases of operation with absorptive and dispersive bistable elements are analyzed. 1983.
