Sensitivity was also a priority for this short pulse tuner design.
So, even a bench-top laser that delivers only enough energy per short pulse to excite a few water molecules can still be astonishingly powerful.
The short pulse (12 psec) duration and high repetition rate (76 or 80 MHz) make the laser well suited for synchronous pumping of dye lasers.
The technique - borrowed from industrial quality-control experts who conduct nondestructive inspections of materials -- involves directing a short pulse of laser light at the top of the slick to generate ultrasonic waves in the oil.
Modelocking, as the term implies, is a way of forcing the many frequency components of a short pulse to move along together, in lockstep, so the pulse doesn't spread into useless mush.
The contract is to provide complete conversion device ultrashort pulses (20 fs, 850 nm) for pulses of other wavelengths, so that it fully covered the spectral range from 190 to 20 000 nm at the maximum possible conservation of the short pulse length.
When the researchers blast a short pulse of radio-frequency energy along this catheter, a small, targeted region of the heart tissue -- including the aberrant loop -- heats up and dies.
