- ‘Their experiment used an S-shaped silicon waveguide pumped with pulses from an external-cavity, continuous-wave diode laser operating at 1.536 m.’
- ‘Pulse radars emit a short, intense burst of radio energy, while continuous-wave radars emit a steady signal.’
- ‘The continuous-wave pump power is directly converted into pulsed power without control electronics or active elements in the cavity.’
- ‘The advantage of this sensor is that it can make a measurement of M in a single frame, allowing single-shot characterization of pulsed lasers, or dynamic monitoring of continuous-wave lasers during warm-up.’
- ‘‘What our aim is, of course, is continuous-wave operation,’ says Porowski.’
