Samenvatting

The photo-injector system envisaged for the proposed CLIC linear e+-e- accelerator at CERN has a demanding set of specifications on output pulse structure, power and timing stability. This paper reports on results obtained with quasi-CW diode pumped laser oscillators with output stabilisation. A 300W 804nm diode array stack is used to side pump Nd:YLF (1047nm) crystals with 200µs pulses at 100Hz repetition rate. Using feedback from the laser output to control an acousto-optic loss modulator in the cavity, start-up spiking and Q-switched behaviour is suppressed. Preliminary results obtained on incorporation of a saturable absorbing mirror for passive modelocking are presented.
