Abstract

We report on a passively mode-locked fiber laser emitting around 976 nm . The self-starting mode locking is achieved in an unidirectional ring cavity by means of nonlinear polarization evolution. Stable single-pulse operation is observed for 480 mW of average output power. This all-normal dispersion laser generates naturally chirped pulses with 1 ps duration. The repetition rate is 40.6 MHz , resulting in 12 nJ pulse energy. External compression using bulk grating shortens the pulse duration down to 286 fs .
