Abstract

We report the generation of high-peak-power picosecond optical pulses in the 1.55 μm spectral band from a monolithically mode-locked laser integrated with a pulse selector and power booster. High-peak-power (>1  W) pulses with durations of 15.4 ps at a 55 MHz selected rate are demonstrated, indicating that this device shows promise as a high-peak-power pulsed light source for bio-photonic applications.
