Abstract

A diode-pumped Nd:YAG laser is demonstrated by using self-starting additive-pulse mode locking with a nonlinear external cavity. Pulse durations of 1.7 psec are generated at an average output power of 25 mW without the need for active amplitude or phase modulation. Design and scaling issues for this technology are discussed.
