A passively mode-locked Ti: Al203 laser using a nonlinear coupled cavity

Atitanium sapphire laser is a versatile laser with wide tunability (670 nm to 1100 nm) and high power capability. Researchers at MIT have recently demonstrated tunable femtosecond pulse generation in a titanium sapphire laser using a passive nonlinear external cavity. The coupled-cavity titanium sapphire laser provides a versatile source at a significant reduction in cost and complexity over short pulse dye laser technology.
