Abstract

We report the demonstration of passively continuous-wave mode-locking (CWML) of diode-pumped Tm,Ho:YVO4 laser using an InGaAs/GaAs multiple quantum-well (MQW) structure semiconductor as the saturable absorber. Stable mode-locking pulses at the central wavelength of 2 041 nm are obtained. The maximum output power is 151 mW. The pulse duration is 4.7 ps at the repetition rate of 64.3 MHz.
