• Reliable passive mode locking with slow Q switching 

        Author(s):Marconi, Mario Carlos; Martinez, Oscar Eduardo; Diodati, Francisco Piero
        An electro-optic modulator (EOM) has been added to a passive mode-locked Nd:glass laser in order to slow Q-switch the cavity. This guarantees that the laser will work near threshold even if the gain of the laser medium or ...
      • Faster graph algorithms via switching classes 

        Author(s):Lindzey, Nathan
        Date Submitted:2012
        The runtime of an algorithm is intimately related to how an instance is represented. Recall that the runtimes of the first generation of graph algorithms were expressed as functions of n := |V|. This analysis was natural ...
