Paper Abstract

A specially developed solid-state laser intended for dynamic calibration of various type streak cameras is preseited. 5±lps light pulses of 0.5% output energy instability were emitted by YA1O3:Nd crystal laser with hybrid mode-locking and passive intracavity negajive feedback produced by the action of a GaAs plate. After compression of single pulse inside the fiber optics compressor, the minimum available pulse duration approaches O.3±O.lps. Such ultrashort pulses were utilized for streak cameras dynamic parameters evaluation.
