Title (EN) OPTICALLY LOCKED HIGH ENERGY OPO-OPA
(FR) OPO-OPA DE HAUTE ÉNERGIE VERROUILLÉ OPTIQUEMENT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Systems and methods for producing high-energy, pico-second laser pulses are disclosed. Systems and methods include using a modelocked laser source to drive an OPO (optical parametric oscillator) and an OPA (optical parametric amplifier) such that the OPA and OPO self-synchronize without the use of separate synchronization components and produce high-energy output without requiring pulse stretchers or pulse compressors, making the laser system viable for portability and vehicle mounting from both cost and durability standpoints.
(FR)L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés pour produire des impulsions laser picoseconde de haute énergie. On utilise une source laser verrouillée en mode afin d'actionner un OPO (oscillateur paramétrique optique) et un OPA (amplificateur paramétrique optique) de sorte que l'OPO et l'OPA se synchronisent automatiquement sans utiliser de composants de synchronisation distincts et génèrent une sortie de haute énergie sans nécessiter d'étireurs d'impulsion ou de compresseurs d'impulsion, ce qui rend le système laser viable en termes de portabilité et de montage sur véhicule tant du point de vue des coûts que de celui de la durabilité.
