Self starting additive pulse modelocking of a Nd:LMA laser
Optics Letters, 17, (20), . (doi:10.1364/OL.17.001453).
A Ti:sapphire-pumped Nd:LMA laser has been passively mode locked by using additive-pulse mode locking, which generates 600-fs-duration pulses at 1.054-µm. The wavelength, pulse duration, and long-term stability of the laser make it eminently suitable as a front-end oscillator of a high-power, chirped-pulse amplifier experiment based on 1.053-µm amplification in Nd:phosphate glass.
