Development of a single-mode OPO tunable in the visible and the infrared

Project: PHD

Description

Tunable, pulsed lasers (in the picosecond range) are widely used for metrology (cartography of atmospheric pollutants, for example). We propose to develop a single-mode, nanosecond OPO with an improved spectral width obtained by using etalon plates. This new solution should provide a 0.007 cm-1 linewidth and a reproducibility (precision on the laser frequency) better than the spectral width
