Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


We demonstrate, for the first time to our knowledge, that passive stabilisation using inverse saturable absorption in indium phosphide expands the parameter range for stable continuous wave mode-locking in a diode-pumped passively mode-locked Nd:KGW laser.
