Paper Abstract

GaAs used in a passively mode-locked Nd:YAG laser is demonstrated to be influential on pulse shortening and chirp production. Additional pulse shortening is partly due to the induced self-diffraction of colliding light pulses in GaAs. The frequency shift and chirp arising from the nonlinear refractive index induced by free-carrier generation in GaAs have also been investigated. Experiments on pulse compression from 23 ps to < 10 ps and showing the downchirp produced in pulse are finished.
