Abstract

All-optical active mode locking of a picosecond Nd:YVO4 laser is demonstrated by use of an intracavity semiconductor nonlinear Fabry–Perot mirror. The reflectivity of the Fabry–Perot mirror is modulated by optical carrier injection. Depending on the carrier recombination time, the width of the Nd:YVO4 laser pulses varies from 6 to 20 ps, as is typical for passively mode-locked Nd:YVO4 lasers.
