Abstract

The non-astigmatic three-element cavity Ti:sapphire laser is attractive because of its simple and compact stable resonator structure. Analytical equations for Kerr nonlinear pulse-shaping strengths are derived by using the ABCD transfer matrix method. Both hard-aperturing and soft-aperturing for effective Kerr-lens mode-locking are discussed. The dependence of the mode-locking condition on cavity length is also addressed.
