Abstract

We describe a novel self-mode-locked Ti:sapphire ring laser that produces 13-fs pulses with peak powers exceeding 1  MW, pulse energies of 13  nJ, and average mode-locked output powers of 1.5  W at a cavity repetition frequency of 110  MHz. A complete resonator analysis describing the optimum mode-locking configuration is presented, together with fringe-resolved autocorrelation and sonogram measurements of the output pulses.
