Abstract

We report for the first time to our knowledge an experimental demonstration of wavelength tuning in a broadband-emitting Ti: sapphire laser crystal based on its own birefringence properties. To investigate the tuning characteristics of the spectral filter, we have used Jones-Vector formalism. The calculated wavelength-selective tuning matches very precisely the experimental observations.
