Abstract

A cw-pumped Cr3+:LiCaAlF6 laser has been configured to produce chirp-free, self-mode-locked pulses of 170-fs duration. The prism-dispersion-compensated cavity contained no active or passive mode-locking device. Mode locking was accomplished through self-focusing in the LiCaAlF6 Crystal with 2.5 W of red light from a cw krypton laser. Rocking of the output coupler initiated the ultrashort-pulse formation.
