Leistungskalierung eines gepulsten Lasers durch Zeitmultiplexing

Kurzfassung englisch:
Power Scaling of a Q-switched laser designed for internal
frequency conversion is demonstrated by combining two Nd:YVO4-gainchannels with a time-multiplexing scheme based on a single crystal photo-elastic modulator (SCPEM). Both channels are coupled with a polarizer and share an output-coupler and acousto-optic modulator (AOM). In order to combine two channels by time multiplexing, the single crystal photo elastic modulator is used which switches between two channels, while the acoustooptic modulator conducts the Q-switching. This allows almost to double the
average output power and repetition rate within a given laser resonator design.
