  • mode-locked laser

A laser that functions by inducing a fixed phase relationship between all of the modes present in the laser cavity. Once all modes are in phase, the modes are then said to be locked. The interference of these modes with one another inside the cavity then allows the laser to produce high energy, peak-powered short pulses of light in time durations that range from femtoseconds to picoseconds.
