Paper Abstract

We developed a passively stabilized Kerr-lens mode-locking scheme for diode-pumped Yb-doped-bulk lasers. Taking an Yb:YAG laser as an example, we succeeded in generating pulses as short as 105 fs, which is to our knowledge the shortest pulse ever produced from a Yb:YAG laser. The spectral width and average laser power are 11.0 nm and 123 mW, respectively.
