Abstract

We describe a Kerr-lens mode-locked Cr:forsterite femtosecond laser in which two Gires–Tournois interferometer mirrors are used to provide negative intracavity group-delay dispersion. The mode-locked laser produced near-bandwidth-limited pulses of 71 fs with an average output power of 700 mW at a wavelength of 1259 nm.
