Paper Abstract

We demonstrate a femtosecond Kerr-lens mode-locked Cr:LiSGaF laser that based on a compact cavity geometry. For the first time to our knowledge, with a combination of 488-, 476- and 458-nm lines from Argon-ion laser as a pump source, 58-fs pulses centered at 845 nm were generated. The average output power is 30 mW, and the time-band product is 0.331, assuming a sech2 pulse shape. Neither Acousto-modulator nor physical aperture or slit were used in this cavity to start and sustain the Kerr-lens mode-locking operation.
