Abstract

A novel low-loss, single-step-growth 1.3-µm GaInNAs saturable Bragg reflector mode-locking element has been developed. Combined radial thickness and postgrowth annealing control have permitted a tuning range of 46 nm for passive mode locking to be demonstrated from one wafer. With this structure, stabilized mode locking was obtained from quasi-cw diode-pumped Nd:YLF and Nd:YALO lasers operating at 1314 and 1342 nm, respectively, with average on-time output powers of as much as 20 W and pulse durations as low as 22 ps.
