Abstract

Wavelength tuning and broad-bandwidth operation of a passively mode-locked Nd:fiber laser is demonstrated at 1060 μm. The oscillator pulses are used to seed a bulk regenerative Nd:glass amplifier, and 300-fs transform-limited pulses with an energy of 10 μJ are obtained after 31 round trips at a repetition rate of 500 Hz.
