Abstract

The use of semiconductor saturable absorbers has emerged as an enabling technology in modern passively modelocked laser systems. Their application to high power picosecond lasers, most notably Nd-doped lasers, has produced systems with average power levels of a few tens of watts. In this paper, the development of these laser systems to the 100W level and above will be outlined.
