Abstract

The operation of a femtosecond Cr4+:YAG laser that incorporates a novel GaInNAsSb semiconductor saturable Bragg reflector is reported. In the mode-locked regime 230fs pulses centred at 1528nm were generated at an average output power of 280mW. The SESAM exhibited a low saturation fluence of 10μJ/cm2 and a short recovery time of 12ps.
