Optical Kerr gating

This result consists in using a CS² cell acting as a Kerr gate pumped by one part of the amplified beam. Instead of using a liquid CS² cell , we can use a solid state non linear medium exhibiting a faster time response than the liquid medium.

Intrinsic overall efficiency of this type of pulse cleaner can reach 80%, but if we take in account the fact that 80% of the laser beam itself is used as the pump beam the real efficiency is dropping down to 10 to 15%.
