Abstract

Passive Q-switched mode locking of a 2.09 μ m flashlamp-pumped Cr 3 + , Tm 3 + , Ho 3 + : Y 3 Sc 2 Al 3 O 12 laser by use of a phosphate glass doped with PbS quantum dots of 5 nm in radius was demonstrated. Mode-locked pulses of 290 ps in duration and up to 0.5 mJ in energy were registered.
