Mode-Locked Erbium/Ytterbium Co-Doped Waveguide Laser



John B. Schlager, Berton Callicoatt, Kevin L. Silverman, Richard Mirin, Norman Sanford, D. L. Veasey


Picosecond pulses are generated from a passively mode-locked ER3+/Yb3+ co-doped planar waveguide laser in an extended cavity configuration with a semiconductor saturable absorber mode locker. Average output power exceeds 8 mW and is expected to increase with laser improvements.
