Abstract

Direct sub- 50 - fs pulse generation is demonstrated with a mode-locked Yb: Y Ca 4 O ( BO 3 ) 3 laser. With external compression, pulses as short as 35 fs are generated at 1055 nm . The oscillator operating at a repetition rate of 95 MHz is pumped by a two-section distributed Bragg reflector tapered diode laser and mode locked by a semiconductor saturable absorber mirror. The onset of self-Raman-conversion for pulse spectral bandwidths exceeding 40 nm (FWHM) is observed.
