Paper Abstract

In this paper we report a comparative study the amplification and spectral tuning characteristics of an injection seeded Ti:Sapphire laser and multipass (4 passages) amplifiers. We show the advantages of injection seeding method to amplify input pulses of low energy levels (nJ and sub nJ). In the multi-passages amplifiers the wave competition for the two wavelength amplification is low. For high level (mJ) pulses the both systems are comparable, but in the injection locking amplifier the temporal pulse shape distortion is essentially high. The energy and power amplification levels are compared both with the change of the output width. For the reported two new multi-passages schemes we are study the dependence of the characteristics on the input polarization.
