The generation of picosecond and femtosecond pulses from all-solid-state, continuous wave, diode-pumped, mode-locked Cr3+:LiSrAlF6 lasers is reported for the first time. A multiple quantum well absorber has been used in a dispersion-compensated cavity to yield cw trains of transform-limited femtosecond pulses.
