Paper Abstract

The utilization of acousto-optic devices for producing stable picosecond pulses is dis-cussed. Incorporating a highly resonant modelocker in a CW YAG laser, pulse-widths of less than 40 ps were generated at ten watts of average power. In addition a very stable pulse compressor system is described which uses a travelling wave loss modulator to provide 3 ps pulses of 532 nm light at 750 milliwatts of average power and less than 5% peak to peak noise.
