Abstract : This Final Report covers a three year research program in basic laser physics and laser device technology. Research covered four main projects: synch-pumped OPO mode locking techniques; definitive measurements of a fundamental excess quantum noise mechanism; development of improved methods for defining and measuring transverse beam quality; and work on new unstable resonator and etched mirror concepts. We believe this program has been particularly productive. Mode locked IR pulses; mode locked OPO; excess quantum noise; laser beam quality; thermally mode controlled diode lasers; Nd: vanadate lasers.
