Paper Abstract

A novel, efficient method for generation of ultrashort pulses in short-gain-duration lasers is described and investigated numerically. The method employs fast mode locking accomplished by means of an electro-optic deflector. The possibilities of the method are demonstrated taking XeCl and KrF excimer lasers as an example. It is proved that, in contradistinction to conventional active mode locking (e.g., with an acousto-optic modulator), even at the gain duration as short as 50 - 100 ns, it is possible to obtain pulses shorter than 10-11 s with this method using a sine-wave driven electro-optic deflector.
