Abstract

We report frequency-modulation mode locking of a diode-laser-pumped Nd:glass laser. We have obtained pulses of 9-psec duration using a lithium niobate phase modulator operating at a repetition rate of 235 MHz. The average output power is 14 mW, for pumping with a 500-mW laser-diode array, and the pulses are approximately 1.4 times transform limited.
