Abstract

We demonstrate a widely tunable passively mode-locked fiber laser operating at a fundamental frequency of 80 MHz with an output power of 90 mW. The laser is capable of generating 5-ps pulses in the region 1010-1064 nm. A strong mode-locking mechanism promoted by frequency-shifted feedback allows us to operate in simultaneous Q-switched and mode-locked regimes and to obtain peak power in excess of 1.2 kW
