Abstract

Continuous-wave mode locking (CW-ML) of a diode-pumped Nd<sup>3+</sup>: BaY<sub>2</sub>F<sub>8</sub> laser is reported for the first time to our knowledge. Pulses as short as 4.8 ps were measured with a total output power of ≈1 W at 1049 nm, corresponding to 3.4 W of absorbed power from the pump diode at 806 nm. A novel technique for passive stabilization of CW-ML has been demonstrated.
