Abstract

A molecular-beam-epitaxy-grown semiconductor saturable absorber mirror with integrated dispersion compensation, based on a Gires–Tournois structure, is demonstrated. This dispersion-compensating saturable absorber mirror generated 160-fs pulses with 25-mW average power from a simple diode-pumped Cr:LiSrAlF6 laser without any additional dispersion compensation.
