Work Package 1

The overall aim of WP1 is to develop an innovative front-end delivering bursts of picosecond pulses at a tunable GHz repetition rate with moderate power to be further amplified up to the kW level in WP2 and WP3. The specific objectives are to:

  1. Develop a tunable GigaHertz frequency comb source module

  2. Develop a laser module with user controlled mode operation and amplified dispersion managed bursts of ps pulses

  3. Develop a broadband tunable laser module with an adjustabke burst repetition rate ranging from 100kHz to 20MHz and arbitrary shaping of the bursts of ps pulses

  4. Develop a novel synchronization system capable of locking the burst pulses to the limited stability target rotation
