New Technologies For Ultrashort Pulse Generation In Solid State Lasers

Recent advances in ultrashort pulse generation techniques suggest that a new ultrashort pulse laser technology can be developed for solid state laser sources. These new laser systems will achieve superior performance and have reduced cost and complexity compared to traditional dye laser technology. The development of solid state ultrashort pulse sources will pave the way for a wide range of research and engineering applications of high speed ultrashort pulse technology. more>>
