Choudhary, Amol, Lagatsky, A.A., Pradeesh, Kannan, Sibbett, W., Brown, C.T.A. and Shepherd, D.P. (2012) Diode-pumped femtosecond solid-state waveguide laser with a 49 GHz pulse repetition rate Optics Letters, 37, (21), pp. 4416-4418. (doi:10.1364/OL.37.004416).

Record type: Article


We report on the first demonstration of a passively mode-locked, diode-pumped, monolithic Yb:glass channel waveguide laser that incorporates a semiconductor saturable absorber mirror. Stable and self-starting mode-locking is achieved in a Fabry.Perot cavity configuration producing a pulse repetition rate up to 4.9 GHz. The shortest pulse duration of 740 fs is generated with 30mW of average output power at a center wavelength of 1058 nm. A maximum output power of 81 mW is produced during mode-locking with corresponding pulse duration of 800 fs.
