Abstract

Passive mode locking of a diode-pumped Yb 3 + : KYF 4 laser is demonstrated using a semiconductor saturable absorber mirror. A high-stability, transform-limited pulse train with a repetition rate of 57 MHz is generated. Solitonlike pulses with maximum average output power of 250 mW , minimum pulse duration of 170 fs , and rms time jitter of 360 fs were obtained.
