Paper Abstract

Additive pulse mode-locking theory is applied to an Er-doped fiber laser and to a Cr4+:YAG laser. Both are mode- locked with a multiple quantum well saturable absorber. It is found that the theory explains their operation quite well. The Cr4+:YAG laser was found to lose mode-locking effectiveness due to a band edge of the quantum well being in the operating range of the laser. The equations also help model the Er-doped fiber laser operation, but more work is required to verify its efficacy.
