Abstract

The mode locking of the mixed sesquioxide single crystal Yb:LuScO3 is demonstrated. This crystal is locally disordered and has the broadest emission spectrum of all sesquioxides known so far. Pulse durations as short as 111 and 74 fs were obtained using the semiconductor saturable absorber mirror and Kerr-lens mode locking, respectively. The latter regime was reached using a two-section distributed Bragg-reflector tapered diode laser as a pump source.
