Novel ultrafast high-power thin-disk laser oscillators and applications for metrology and XUV generation

Paradis, Clément ; Südmeyer, Thomas (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

Ultrafast lasers have revolutionized research in fundamental physics, chemistry and biology as well as industrial applications. A great number of experiments benefit from the development of Yb-based high-power femtosecond laser sources. These systems typically include a low-power mode-locked oscillator followed by amplifier stages relying on fiber, slab or thin-disk technologies. In many cases,...

All-optical microwave generation using frequency combs

Dolgovskiy, Vladimir ; Südmeyer, Thomas (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2012.

Optical frequency combs from modelocked femtosecond lasers provide a direct, phase-coherent link between the radio frequency and optical domains. This thesis describes the development and realization of an ultra-stable microwave oscillator based on optical-to-microwave frequency transfer using two different optical frequency comb technologies. An optical reference oscillator is realized...
