Abstract

250-fs pulses have been generated directly from a passively mode-locked ytterbium–erbium figure-of-eight laser. In addition to the usual characteristic of one pulse per round trip, the laser could be made to produce regular pulse bursts at the round-trip frequency, with repetition rates in excess of 300 GHz.
