Abstract

Active mode locking of a Pr3+/Yb3+-doped upconversion fluoride fiber laser with an all-fiber ZnO acousto-optic phase modulator is demonstrated for the first time to the authors’ knowledge. Optical pulses of 550ps duration with a repetition rate of 239 MHz at a wavelength of 635 nm have been generated.
