Abstract

We report the operation of a cavity-dumped self-mode-locked chromium-doped forsterite laser with pulse energies exceeding 30 nJ and pulse durations as short as 54 fs (FWHM) at 1260 nm. By frequency doubling in a β-barium borate crystal, pulse energies as high as 3 nJ and pulse durations as short as 49 fs (FWHM) at 630 nm were generated. The high stability and ultrashort pulse widths with a variable repetition rate in both the infrared (1260 nm) and the red (630 nm) make this system an attractive light source for ultrafast spectroscopy.
