Abstract

Mode-locked operation of chromium-doped forsterite (Cr:Mg2SiO4) has been achieved for the first time to our knowledge. The chromium-doped forsterite laser has been mode locked by using two methods: active mode locking, which produced pulses as short as 31 ps tunable between 1204 and 1277 nm, and synchronously pumped mode locking, which produced pulses of 260-ps duration tunable between 1195 and 1295 nm.
