Paper Abstract

We present new results on the dynamics of laser amplifiers based on two-photon stimulated transitions. We have developed a mathematical model predicting stronger gain and faster saturation than what is observed in a conventional one-photon amplifier. We also demonstrate that two-photon stimulated emission can lead to pulse narrowing with compression factors over 5.
