Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding contributionpeer-review


We demonstrate for the first time that the DUV laser material cerium LiCAF can be mode-locked to produce picosecond pulses in this hard-to-access spectral range, and we discuss the potential to directly generate sub-femtosecond pulses.
