Abstract : This multi-format modulated laser may be programmed to produce a variety of output waveforms by applying a different one of a plurality of modulating waveforms thereto. The outputs can includes continuous waves, both modulated and unmodulated, Q-switched pulses, cavity dumped pulses, shaped pulses and mode locked pulses. The laser is provided with an intracavity electro-optic modulator and may comprise two coupled cavities with a gain cell in one cavity and the modulator in the other cavity. (Author)
