Abstract

In this paper, we present a simple, compact, and efficient Yb:CALGO laser system that can produce sub-100 fs pulses easily tunable over a 38 nm wide wavelength range between 1034 and 1072 nm. The laser is passively mode locked with a semiconductor saturable absorber and generates up to 90 mW output power (for 230 mW absorbed pump), using a single prism for both tuning and dispersion compensation.
