We report on a high-power, diode-pumped, self-mode-locked laser at with the Kerr effect arising from large third-order nonlinearity of crystal. At the pump power of , the average output power of was generated with a repetition rate in the range of . The mode-locked pulse width can be smoothly varied from by controlling the amount of spatial hole burning.
