Abstract

A 2.0-mJ/pulse, 2-nsec, single-longitudinal-mode Ti:sapphire laser oscillator has been demonstrated in a compact grazing-incidence cavity configuration similar to a Littman arrangement. The oscillator’s output beam quality is TEM00, making it attractive for doubling and mixing applications. With currently available optics the laser is tunable over greater than 2500 cm−1 from 746 to 918 nm.
