Paper Abstract

We report a self-starting mode-locked Cr:forsterite laser with 1030 nm Yb:YAG laser as the pump laser in this paper. Two chirped mirrors are used to provide the negative intracavity group-delay dispersion; the mode locking is initiated and stabilized by a semiconductor saturable-absorber mirror (SESAM). With absorbed power of 7W at 1030nm, stable femosecond laser pulses with average power of 202 mW were obtained at a repetition rate of 82.6 MHz, the autocorrelation measurement shows the typical pulse duration is about 29 fs.
