Paper Abstract

Performance of the chromium-doped forsterite laser for various modes of operation is reviewed. Methods for generation of femtosecond pulses are presented. Stable transform limited tunable femtosecond pulses with FWHM of 50 fs were generated from a self mode- locked chromium-doped forsterite laser. Synchronous pumping provided the starting mechanism for self mode-locked operation.
