Abstract

We demonstrate the passive mode-locking operation of an in-band-pumped Ho : YLiF 4 laser at 2.06 μm using a semiconductor saturable absorber mirror based on InGaAsSb quantum wells. A transform-limited pulse train with minimum duration of 1.1 ps and average power of 0.58 W has been obtained at a repetition frequency of 122 MHz . A maximum output power of 1.7 W has been generated with a corresponding pulse duration of 1.9 ps .
