The steady state modelocking of a laser incorporating a mirror with an intensity dependent reflection coefficient is analysed The pulse length is determined by the balance between pulse stretching due to gain narrowing and pulse shortening due to the nonlinear mirror. The final pulse length can approach the limit set by the gain bandwidth of the active medium.
