Lasers & Sources

Dynamic sensors based on wavelength-swept lasers
Two designs, one based on a wavelength filter and one on Fourier domain mode locking, enable dynamic measurements to be made using fiber-optic sensors.

The incoherent combination of multiple low-energy laser pulses may enable a simpler path toward high-average-power, high-peak-power, high-efficiency laser drivers for laser-plasma accelerators.
