Measurements at 351 nm of temporal dispersion in fibers Page: 4 of 26

Pulses with extended tails were observed in each streak that was recorded at about
400 counts.
6. We frequently had difficulty obtaining adequate transmittance through
50- m single fibers. Some of our problems probably were related to inexperience in
cleaving this particular fiber.
II. Test arrangement.
A schematic of the arrangement is shown in Fig. 1. A single 125-ps, 1053-nm
pulse was selected from a mode-locked train that was emitted by a Nd:YLF oscillator,
and injected into a chirping fiber. The 16-nJ output from this fiber was injected into
the front end of the OSL chain which amplified the pulse energy to 4 mJ and relayed
the pulse to the compressor gratings. Compression provided 1053-nm, 20-ps, 1-mJ
pulses, which were converted by tripling in KDP crystals into 40- J, 351-nm pulses.
One half of the energy in the 351-nm pulse was injected into a UV Launch
Optic [Ref. 1]which was attached by an SMA coupler to the fiber under test. The
remainder of the UV light propagated over an air path. Each streak record
contained light from both of these channels. Color filters were used to prevent
entry of 527-nm or 1053-nm light into the fibers.
