Broad-area diode-laser system for a rubidium Bose-Einstein condensation experiment. APPLIED PHYSICS B-LASERS AND OPTICS 71 (4) : 475-480. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1007/s003400000395||Abstract:||We report on master-oscillator power amplification using a broad-area laser diode (BAL) emitting at a wavelength of γ = 780 nm. The master oscillator is an injection-locked single-mode diode laser delivering a seeding beam of 35 mW, which is amplified in double pass through the BAL up to 410mW. After beam shaping and spatial filtering by a single-mode fibre we obtain a clean Gaussian beam with a maximum power of 160 mW. There is no detectable contribution of the BAL eigenmodes in the spectrum of the output light. This laser system is employed for operation of a 87Rb magneto-optical trap ( MOT) and for near-resonant absorption imaging in a Bose-Einstein condensation experiment.||Source Title:||APPLIED PHYSICS B-LASERS AND OPTICS||URI:||https://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/229525||ISSN:||09462171
