Intensity pulsations in distributed feedback Yb:Phosphate waveguide lasers
International Quantum Electronics Conference and Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics Pacific Rim (28 August - 1 September 2011 : Sydney)
Proceedings of the International Quantum Electronics Conference and Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics (Pacific Rim IQEC/CLEO 2011) incorporating ACOLS and ACOFT, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, 28 August - 01 September 2011, p.995-997
The intensity pulsations of a cw 1030 nm Yb:Phosphate monolithic waveguide laser with distributed feedback are described. We show that the pulsations could result from the coupling of the two orthogonal polarization modes through the two photon process of cooperative luminescence. The predictions of the presented theoretical model agree well with the observed behaviour.
