Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

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.
