Abstract

We realized a stable Kerr-lens mode-locked operation in a Yb:YCa4O(BO3)3 laser. Pulses as short as 73 fs were generated at the central wavelength of 1043 nm, with a bandwidth of 19 nm. The femtosecond oscillator operating at a repetition rate of 110 MHz delivers an average output power of 70 mW under 3 W diode pump power. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first demonstration of a pure Kerr-lens mode-locked operation in a diode-pumped Yb:YCa4O(BO3)3 laser.
