Passively mode-locked sub 200 fs pulses are generated from Er-Yb co-doped ZBLAN waveguide laser using a semiconductor saturable absorber mirror repetition rates of up to 533 MHz. At 156 MHz and 1556 nm central wavelength, the chip laser operates with a broad 25 nm bandwidth. The waveguides were written in the Er-Yb co-doped ZBLAN glass by using ultrafast laser inscription.
