Abstract
In this paper we describe the applications of a Ti:Sapphire laser pumped by a copper vapor laser (CVL). We calculated an constructed an astigmatically compensated cavity for CVL pumped solid state lasers. The characteristics of our laser are interesting in the application of spectroscopy. With intracavity experiments high sensitivity was obtained over a large spectral range. We demonstrate, using I2 as a test molecule, that the extreme sensitivity of intracavity stimulated emission pumping (SEP) is due to non-linear effects which result in mode-locking.
