Abstract

The diode-pumped femtosecond laser passively mode-locked by an ion-implanted semi-conductor saturable absorber mirror (SESAM) was studied. Yb:YAB required high brightness pumping and picosecond SESAM response for stable continuous wave mode-locking. It was found that the detuning by a fraction of a degree resulted in stable mode-locking of strongly chirped pulses in the infrared region.
