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.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
