Paper Abstract

The passive mode-locking of solid-state lasers in the stable regime of a stationary single pulse is investigated from the point of view of designing reliable sources of picosecond, subpicosecond, and femtosecond light pulses. The direction of the transient evolution and steady regime of laser generation is determined from the Liapunov functional, and the self-phase modulation of ultrashort pulses and the shortest pulse duration are discussed. The output power, spectrum, and transient evolution of the spectral shape of mode-locked pulses of a ruby laser and Nd:glass laser are analyzed, and it is shown that pulse widths are in good agreement with the theoretical predictions.
