Abstract

We describe a diode-pumped Kerr-lens mode-locked Cr3+:LiSrAlF6 laser that produces 50 mW of 70-fs pulses in the 820–890-nm range when pumped by two red diodes of 400 mW each. By using a lower-transmission output coupler we have demonstrated for the first time to our knowledge a self-starting regime with an output power of 10 mW and 55-fs pulses.
