Abstract

We report the generation of subpicosecond pulses from a passively mode locked, optically pumped quantum well semiconductor disk laser using a quantum dot semiconductor saturable absorber mirror (SESAM). We obtained 870 fs pulses at a repetition rate of 895 MHz with average output power of 45 mW at 1027.5 nm. The mode locking operation was insensitive to SESAM temperature over the range of ?10 to 85 °C, with the pulse duration variation thought to be dominated by the temperature dependence of the group delay dispersion
