Paper Abstract

Q-switched diode lasers have been operated in a continuous-inversion mode of Q-switching at pulse repetition rates of 14 GHz with a measurement-system-limited 40-ps FWHM pulsewidth. In continuous-inversion Q-switching, the gain in the amplifier section of the device is continuously high while the laser is modulated by an intracavity electroabsorption modulator. The low-capacitance of the modulator section of a Q-switched laser makes it attractive for high-speed modulation, especially when integrated with other electronic devices.
