Abstract
THERE IS A NEED FOR AN INEXPENSIVE, COMPACT, LOW MAINTENANCE SUB-PICOSECOND OPTICAL PULSE SOURCE TO DRIVE AN OPTICALLY SAMPLED AND TRIGGERED OSCILLOSCOPE. ADEQUATE LASER SOURCES PRESENTLY OCCUPY TEN SQUARE FEET AND REQUIRE REGULAR MAINTENANCE, 20 KW OF ELECTRICITY, AND COOLING WATER; AND THEY COMPRISE THE MAIN COST ITEM IN THE PICOSECOND OSCILLOSCOPE. THE NEW PULSED LASER UNDER DEVELOPMENT IN THIS PROJECT WILL USE SEVERAL SEMICONDUCTOR LASERS IN A SINGLE CAVITY TO AVOID THE INSTABILITY, BROAD OPTICAL PULSES, AND LOW OUTPUT POWER OF A SINGLE MODE-LOCKED DIODE LASER. THE NEW OPTICAL PULSE SOURCE WILL OCCUPY ONE SQUARE FOOT, USES LOW MAINTENANCE DIODE LASERS, AND DRAWS A FEW WATTS OF ELECTRICITY.
