Towards the “dream pulsed laser”

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

It is an obvious trend that more and more technology devices are approaching the stage of computer-controlled black box, and lasers cannot escape this either. Generally, users do not want to understand the operation of a black box. They just want to set the output radiation parameters through their computer and have a magic black box deliver the desired radiation. In addition, they expect this technology to be reliable and inexpensive. The most fitting laser platforms for this type of technology are semiconductor and fibre-optical, which do not require optical alignment of laser cavities and have been performing very well in a numerous applications. Here, we analyse the fibre laser platform from the viewpoint of using it as a base for implementation of a “dream pulsed laser” and discuss limitations and prospects of such implementation.
