Active transverse mode control and optimisation of an all-solid-state laser using intracavity adaptive-optic mirror

Lubeigt, W. and Valentine, G.J. and Girkin, J.M. and Bente, E. and Burns, D. (2002) Active transverse mode control and optimisation of an all-solid-state laser using intracavity adaptive-optic mirror. Optics Express, 10 (13). pp. 550-555. ISSN 1094-4087

Abstract

A 37 element adaptive optic mirror has been used intracavity to control the oscillation mode profile of a diode-laser pumped Nd:YVO4 laser. Mode and power optimisation are demonstrated by closed loop automatic optimisation of the deformable mirror.
