Active mode locking of a Pr3+/Yb 3+ -doped upconversion fluoride fiber laser with an all-fiber ZnO acousto-optic phase modulator is demonstrated for the first time to the authors' knowledge. Optical pulses of ∼550-ps duration with a repetition rate of 239 MHz at a wavelength of 635 nm have been generated.
