Abstract

A Nd:YLF laser has been actively mode-locked at the third-order harmonic cavity frequency using a lithium niobate phase modulator. Self-oscillating pulses of 14 ps duration, 1 GHz repetition rate, and 10mV average power at 1053 nm wavelength have been obtained. A 1GHz rf signal to drive a phase modulator was obtained by using 1GHz pulse train without rf synthesizer as a driver of an active mode locker.
