Paper Abstract

Operation of Cr:LiSAF laser pumped by 670 nm high brightness single stripe (width of 50 μm) laser diode with pump-threshold as low as 650 μw is reported. The lasing threshold was observed simultaneously with threshold of operation of laser diode. For short pulse generation we designed and tested different multiple quantum well saturable absorbers. The continuous mode-locked operation was achieved with tunability from 846 to 875 nm.
