Abstract

We report high-repetition-rate pulses obtained by cavity dumping of a neodymium-doped phosphate glass fibre laser operating at 1053 nm using a specially constructed acoustooptic modulator. With 27 mW absorbed pump power at 812 nm we obtained stable trains of output pulses with repetition rate in the range 0.5 to 8MHz having corresponding pulse widths in the range 127 to 19 ns without significant sacrifice in the average output power of 8 mW
