Abstract

We report on Kerr lens mode locking (KLM) of Yb:CALGO by means of high-brightness optical pumping with a diffraction limited fibre laser. Various cavity configurations (intracavity group delay dispersion and output coupler transmission) have been investigated to deliver sub-40 fs pulses at watt level and pulse duration as short as 32 fs.
