Abstract

We have demonstrated self-mode locking of an NaCl:OH color-center laser by exploiting the Kerr effect in a rod of high-nonlinearity glass placed within the laser cavity. The mode-locking process was initiated by a regenerative acousto-optic modulation, and sub-100-fs pulses were produced at wavelengths of ~1575 nm.
