Abstract

Erbium/ytterbium co-doped planar waveguide lasers are fabricated for low-jitter mode-locked operation and single-frequency operation at 1.54 υm. The passively mode-locked lasers produce picosecond pulses at fundamental repetition rates up to 1 GHz with residual jitters below 200 fs (10 Hz - 10 MHz). The compact single-frequency lasers produce sub-10 kHz line widths with a power output approaching 100 mW.
