Abstract

We report on high-repetition-rate frequency-modulation mode locking of all-solid-state neodymium lasers operating at a 1.3-μm wavelength. At a repetition rate of 1 GHz, pulses of 12- and 8-ps durations with average powers of 162 and 240 mW have been obtained for 3-W diode-laser-pumped Nd:YAG and Nd:YLF lasers, respectively. Driven relaxation oscillations of a frequency-modulation mode-locked cw laser are also described.
