Mode-locked laser pulse shapes

Abstract

The pulse shape of a mode-locked continuously pumped Nd:YAG laser has been studied using an optical correlation technique. The shape is found to be Gaussian under stable conditions with the phase-modulator frequency tuned to the cavity-mode difference frequency. This result is consistent with the theory of mode locking in lasers with homogeneous broadening. © 1970 The American Institute of Physics.
