Abstract
Temporal compressions of optical pulses and pulse trains have been performed by the photon-echo process in Tm-doped YAG at 793 nm. Single-pulse temporal compression by almost a. factor of 500 from 10 mu s to 22 ns and pulse train compression by a factor of 14 from 5 mu s to 350 ns with a high-speed frequency-tunable external-cavity diode laser are demonstrated. It is suspected that significantly higher compression could be obtained by improved control of the laser frequency and laser frequency chirps. Theoretically, Tm-doped YAG should be capable of compressing single pulses by almost a factor of 10(7).
