Paper Abstract

Short high power pulses can be generate from a laser cavity by passive mode-locking. Previously, saturable absorbers were used, but recently nonlinear mirrors have simplified the laser cavity maintenance. The optimization of the performances of this component in function of the angle (alpha) between the direction polarization of the incident wave and the ordinary axis of the nonlinear crystal is reported.
