Abstract

We have implemented a simple method for generating an “amplified” phase-coherent light pulse in which a pulse train of phase-coherent, equidistant input light pulses from a mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser is coupled into a ring cavity resonator whose length is matched to the mode-locked pulse repetition frequency at 82 MHz. Pulses are thus coherently superimposed and added inside the buildup cavity and form an intense pulse that is switched out from the cavity via a fast acousto-optic modulator. The method thus provides a pulse train at a reduced and controlled repetition frequency and with higher pulse energies than the original mode-locked pulses.
