Paper Abstract

Original laboratory built optoelectronic control system for near IR lasers was applied for a pulsed Nd:glass laser. Optoelectronic control system was based on a high-voltage silicon structures (applied voltage greater than or equal to 3 kV, response time less than 0.5 ns). Self-mode-locking was achieved with aid of an optoelectronic control system only (without any saturable absorber). Passive mode-locking peculiarities of the Nd:glass laser with dye 3274U solution in ethanol as a saturable absorber were investigated. Subnanosecond response time of the optoelectronic system allowed us to realize three operating regimes of the laser, which are distinguished by the temporal delay of the negative feedback system.
