Abstract

We examine the performance of an actively mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser operating in the 1-μm wavelength regime. Pulse durations of 1.7 psec are produced with an average output power of 400 mW. With the use of external dispersion compensation this pulse width has been further reduced to 850 fsec.
