Paper Abstract

The increasing demand of ultrashort laser system based on all solid-state concepts has stimulated he development of new solid-state laser material in the past. Both high peak power and broad spectrum are attractive for spectroscopic applications. By mixing intense laser pulses in nonlinear optical crystals ultrashort pulses from mid-infrared to ultra-violet have been generated. Optical parametric oscillators (OPO) driven by cw mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser provide a new source type of fs-pulses in the [tm wavelength range at high repetition rate.[1] Visible fs-pulses from all solid-state systems can therefore be generated by frequency doubling of OPO's.
