Development of a high power, ultrashort pulse laser system
This work focuses on the development of a new high power, ultrashort pulse dye laser system based on solid state Nd:YAG pump sources for a synchronously pumped dye laser and a series of dye amplifiers. This system will be ...
Application of LNA lasers to helium optical pumping
Electron spin-polarized helium 2$\sp3$S$\sb1$ metastable atoms are a valuable probe of spin-dependent phenomena. Helium metastable atoms can be polarized by illumination with circularly-polarized 1.083 $\mu$m 2$\sp3$S$\sb1 ...
Polarization reversal in thin film lithium niobate on silicon
The spontaneous polarization of thin film LiNbO$\sb3$ has been shown to be reversible with the application of an electric field at room temperature. This electric field is applied across the sample in the form of a voltage ...
Deposition, characterization, and applications of thin film lithium niobate
Ferroelectric thin films of lithium niobate have been epitaxially grown on a variety of silicon and gallium arsenide substrates by reactive r.f. sputtering. The deposition process was optimized by independently varying the ...
