Mode-locked Lasers and Their Prospects

Ultrafast optics have been a very rich research field, and today short pulsed laser systems find different applications in areas of fundamental research as well as for medical applications. Ultrafast laser systems are used for time-resolved studies in chemistry, optical frequency metrology, terahertz generation, spectroscopy and microscopy, and optical coherence tomography. The cornerstone of ultrafast...


Ti:Sapphire Laser Overview

Titanium-doped sapphire (Ti:Al2O3 or Ti:Sapphire) lasers and amplifiers have enabled countless applications in fundamental research in physics, biology, and chemistry since their invention in the early 1980s. Nowadays Ti:Sapphire lasers play an important role across a wide range of photonics applications, including multicolor ultrafast spectroscopy, multiphoton deep-tissue imaging, terawatt and petawatt physics, and “cold” micromachining....
