Study of the energy stability of ultra-short pulses from an yttrium-aluminium garnet laser

Abstract

The energy stability of ultra-short pulses (USPs) from an yttrium-aluminium garnet laser with passive mode locking (PML) has been investigated. Experimental results of passive mode locking based on solutions of widely used dyes are given for comparison. Using these saturable absorbers we found that the energy distribution of USP did not depend on the laser working frequency nor on the duration of the experiment.
