Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Q-switched picosecond pulses of up to 100pJ have been generated in a novel tapered bow-tie diode laser while maintaining a single spatial mode. This indicates an order of magnitude pulse energy increase over otherwise similar nontapered structures.
