Ultrafast repetition rate control for pulsed femtosecond lasers (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Ole Peters; Sami Wittmann; Ronald Holzwarth

Paper Abstract

The demand for high speed Terahertz measurement devices for industrial and research applications is growing rapidly. From plant biology to nondestructive testing in the automotive industry, there is a long list of applications demanding rapid scanning of femtosecond pulses. We present a novel approach to speed up the repetition rate control by a factor of 10 compared to conventional approaches using electro-optical means . Hence, we have demonstrated repetition rate changes of 100 kHz in less than 1 ms. This increase in speed enables novel applications in Terahertz spectroscopy which will be presented.
