• A second-order autocorrelator for single-shot measurement of femtosecond laser pulse durations

A second-order autocorrelator for single-shot measurement of ultrashort laser pulse durations has been set up. It is based on recording the spatial profile of non-collinear phase-matched second harmonic generation in a KDP crystal using a CCD camera-framegrabber combination. Performance of the system is described from measurement of 250 femtosecond transform-limited laser pulses from a passively mode-locked, diode pumped Nd:glass laser. It can also be used for measurement of picosecond laser pulses in the multi-shot scanning mode.

• Design and performance characteristics of an electromagnetic interference shielded enclosure for high voltage Pockels cell switching system

An electro-magnetic interference noise shielding enclosure for Pockels cells for high speed synchronized switching has been set-up and tested. The shielding effectiveness of the aluminum enclosures housing the Pockels cells and the electronic circuitry has been measured using a high impedance probe and is found to be $\sim 50 dB$. This ensures a noise-free and synchronized electro-optic switching in an Nd:glass re-generative ampliﬁer of chirped pulse ampliﬁcation based table top terawatt laser system.
