Paper Abstract

Continuous-wave modelocked operation of a Tm:YAG laser is demonstrated in the 2 micrometers wavelength region. The Tm:YAG laser is actively modelocked with an acousto-optic modulator to generate stable, transform-limited pulses of 35 picosecond duration at a repetition rate of 300 MHz.
