We report the mode-locked operation of two new Yb-doped oxyorthosilicates, (YSO) and (LSO), that are longitudinally diode pumped. supplied pulses as short as with of output power at . More than of average output power, for pulse durations of at and at for and , respectively, were provided. These are, to our best knowledge, the highest values ever obtained and the most efficient mode-locked laser in such a classic fiber-coupled diode-pumping configuration.
