Abstract

A diode-pumped Yb:LuAG ceramics laser was investigated. CW laser performance was achieved. Passively femtosecond mode-locked laser operation was also successfully realized by using a SESAM mirror. The mode-locked pulse duration as short as 650 fs was obtained with a maximum output power of 200 mW. (© 2013 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim)
