Paper Abstract

Performance data of a gain switched Ti:Sapphire laser operating at a repetition rate of one kilohertz is presented. With one single set of optics the tuning range of the laser exceeds 400 nm. The output power is 4.2 W at 800 nm with an almost diffraction limited beam quality and a pulse duration of 8 ns. The laser control includes two operational modes: Running the laser precisely at a certain wavelength or alternatively scanning the output wavelength continuously throughout a chosen band. Thanks to its high pulse peak power, narrow line width and high beam quality, this laser is well suited for frequency conversion.
