Abstract

We report on the generation of transform-limited pulses of 150-fs duration from an actively mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser. The laser produced subpicosecond pulses over the range 780–860 nm, with a maximum average output power of 600 mW. The output spot was in the form of a near-TEM00 spot and demonstrated long-term pulse stability.
