Abstract

A self-starting stretched-pulse mode-locked erbium-doped fiber laser that uses fast and slow semiconductor saturable absorbers is described. By using two absorbers, we obtained reliable operation at a fundamental repetition rate with 250 pJ of pulse energy without multiple-pulse breakup. External chirp compensation was used to compress the highly chirped pulses to durations of 135 fs.
