The laser-diode-pumped, actively mode-locked Nd:glass laser has recently been shown to be a good source of picosecond pulses. Subpicosecond pulses have been obtained by using self-starting additive pulse mode-locking (APM), where the Nd:glass laser was pumped with a krypton laser. An intensity threshold for the onset of self-starting APM indicates the need to develop high-power, high-slope efficiency, laser-diode-pumped Nd:glass lasers, if self-starting APM is to be achieved in this all solid-state system.
