Sub-ns pulse shaping of microchip laser under amplification (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

A laser amplifier can shape the sub-ns pulses of a microchip laser (Opt. Express 26(07), 8609 (2018) and 27(14), 19555 (2019)). In this work, by numerical calculations based on the rate equation for population inversion and photon density taking into account temporal pulse shape, we simulated propagation in the highly excited Nd:YAG-rod amplifier of sub-ns Micro-MOPA and proved amplification conditions to compress the pulse length toward under 100 ps operation.
