Paper Abstract

Time evolution of the laser light intensity from a self-starting Yb:KYW femtosecond laser with passive mode-locking is presented. One photon and two photon signal transients have been recorded for a few hundred microseconds after opening the laser cavity, and transition from continuous wave to pulsed operation is observed. The collected data are divided into two common types of evolution, with different transition phases and their characteristics are discussed.
