摘要

介绍了高重复频率锁模激光技术的发展和研究现状,着重举例分析了近年来国内外高重复频率固体锁模激光器的发展水平和动向。固体锁模激光器具有输出功率高、重复频率高和稳定性好等优点,提高其重复频率,不仅可以促进光频标的发展,提供新的时间频率基准,还可应用于空间通信、激光雷达等领域。

Abstract

The state of the art of high repetition rate mode-locking technology is introduced. Recent developments of high repetition rate mode-locked solid-state laser are described briefly, followed by a detail review of examples. Mode-locked solid-state lasers are known with high output power, high repetition rate and good stability. Scaling up the repetition rate of solid-state lasers may not only benefit optical metrology and provide a new time-frequency reference, but also find applications in space communications, laser radar and other research fields.
