We report that InAs/GaAs quantum dots were developed to be saturable absorbers as well as output couplers in diode-pumped passively mode-locked Nd:YVO4 lasers at 1342 nm. With an incident pump power of 12.6 W, an average output power of 0.85 W with a mode-locked pulse width of 26 ps at a repetition rate of 152 MHz was obtained.
