Abstract

We report the operation of a laser diode pumped La1−xNdxMgAl11O19 laser mode locked by an electro-optic phase modulator. The repetition rate of the laser was 230 MHz, and the average output power was 50 mW, when pumped by a 500-mW broad-stripe laser diode. Transform-limited pulses of 14 ps duration were obtained. We have also demonstrated the FM operation of this laser, with bandwidths of up to 440 GHz being obtained.
