Abstract

We report on the first demonstration of a passively mode-locked, diode-pumped, monolithic Yb:glass channel waveguide laser that incorporates a semiconductor saturable absorber mirror. Stable and self-starting mode-locking is achieved in a Fabry-Perot cavity configuration producing a pulse repetition rate up to 4.9 GHz. The shortest pulse duration of 740 fs is generated with 30 mW of average output power at a center wavelength of 1058 nm. A maximum output power of 81 mW is produced during mode-locking with corresponding pulse duration of 800 fs.
