Abstract

A diode-pumped Yb:YVO4 laser has been passively mode locked for the first time, to our knowledge. 120fs pulses with an average output power of 300mW and a peak power as high as 14.5kW are obtained by use of a semiconductor saturable-absorber mirror for passive mode locking. The optical spectrum has a 10nm bandwidth (full width at half-maximum) and is centered at 1021nm.
