Abstract

We report a diode-pumped intracavity second-harmonic generation mode-locked solid-state Tm:YAP laser operating at 1988 nm using a periodically poled congruent LiNbO3 as the nonlinear crystal. The threshold of continuous wave mode locking is 11.6 W. The maximum output power is 1.67 W, while the shortest pulse obtained is 4.7 ps at a repetition rate of 97.09 MHz.
