Abstract

Using different end-pump methods, short-pulse generation in an active continuous-wave-injected ring cavity with homogeneously broadened Yb 3 + : YAG crystal is studied numerically. In the derived model, the saturation of the pump absorption is taken into account. The effects of the seeding intensity, the seeding frequency, the amplifier length, and the efficiency of the acousto-optic modulator on the peak intensity using different end-pump methods are analyzed. The results show that, of the end-pump methods considered, the optimum method is the backreflection pump method.
