Abstract

A pulsed Ti:sapphire laser with a Z-folded cavity, which was pumped by a freqeuncy-doubled Nd:YAG laser, was developed. It shows 120 nm wavelength tuning range from 740 nm to 860 nm with 90 nm FWHM under a pumping energy of 3 mJ with 18% output coupler. Using a birefringent filter, the effective efficiency was improved about 10 times compare to without a birefringent filter. The output energy obtained was $\365mu$Jwith 4 nm FWHM. And the wavelength tuning range was broadened to about 160 nm within an output energy fluctuation of $\pm$10%.
