We demonstrate the first vertical-external-cavity surface-emitting semiconductor laser with an integrated saturable absorber for passive modelocking. The novel MIXSEL concept appears suitable for cost-effective high-volume wafer-scale fabrication of high-repetition-rate lasers for telecommunications or optical clocking.
