Paper Abstract

We use a novel design of Cr4+:forsterite laser to generate ultrashort high energy laser pulses around 1200 - 1300 nm. Pumping with a fiber laser provides an excellent long-term stability, and semiconductor saturated absorber mirror provides a stable mechanism for self-starting. We characterize the output of this laser and discuss its application for deep tissue biological imaging and semiconductor processing.
