Abstract

We study solid-state laser mode locking in the self-induced transparency regime of an intracavity absorber. Depending on the absorber dephasing, pulse energy, and resonator dispersion, we find stable coherent 2π -pulse operation, pulse splitting, oscillatory pulse shapes, and smooth transition to incoherent saturable-absorber mode locking.
