The Photonics Quiz

Test yourself by solving a set of questions concerning laser technology, optical fibers, and nonlinear optics! The following questions are mostly solvable by using the RP Photonics Encyclopedia. Note that in some cases more than one answer is correct.

Question 9

Is self-starting passive mode locking easier to achieve for short laser resonators?

(a) yes, because this increases absorber saturation in the early phase of pulse generation

(b) no, because this reduces the ratio of peak power to average power and thus leads to weaker absorber saturation
