Compact high-power optical source for resonant infrared pulsed laser ablation and deposition of polymer materials

Kolev, Vesselin Z; Duering, M; Luther-Davies, Barry; Rode, Andrei V


We propose a novel tuneable table-top optical source as an alternative to the free electron laser currently used for resonant infrared pulsed laser deposition of polymers. It is based on two-stage pulsed optical parametric amplification using MgO doped periodically poled lithium niobate crystals. Gain in excess of 10(6) in the first stage and pump depletion of 58% in the second stage were achieved when the system was pumped by a high-power Nd:YVO4 picosecond laser source at 1064 nm and...[Show more]
