    Abstract. We discuss power scaling of passively modelocked lasers using multiple laser heads in the resonator. We experimentally compared two different approaches for the cavity design, both using three side-pumped Nd:YAG laser heads. We obtained a record-high average output power of up to 27 W...

    The generation of a femptosecond second harmonic in a bacteriorhodopsin solution is investigated. It is shown that the behavior of the harmonic can be explained by the coherent interference of several contributions from three- and five-wave mixing processes (?(2) and ?(4)). The magnitude and...
