Paper Abstract

We present a diode-pumped actively mode-locked Tm:YLF laser. Continuous-wave mode-locked regime was achieved using an acousto-optic modulator and a stable train of pulses with 150 MHz repetition rate, 220 ps pulse width and 1.2 W average output power at 1.91 μm in a nearly diffraction-limited beam was obtained. Laser characteristics in the freerunning regime with both continuous and pulsed pumping as well as humidity-related issues are also reported.
