Abstract

In this Letter, we demonstrate a nonlinear-mirror (NLM) mode-locked diode-pumped solid-state Nd : YVO 4 laser operating at 1342 nm , in which the NLM comprises a periodically poled LiNbO 3 crystal and a dichroic mirror. The self-starting threshold for cw mode locking is 1.5 W , which is significantly lower than that of saturable absorber mode locking. An average power of 1.52 W at 1342 nm is obtained under diode pump power of 10 W at 808 nm , with the slope efficiency being up to 16.8%. The pulse width and the repetition rate of the mode-locked laser output are about 9.5 ps and 101 MHz , respectively.
