Abstract
The characteristics of state-of-the art cw mode-locked Nd:YAG systems at 1064 nm are described, including their properties when simultaneously Q-switched and mode-locked. The wavelength region around 1320 nm is discussed in detail and simultaneous mode-locking of both the 1319 nm and 1338 nm lines is reported for the first time. Several examples of the laser's success as a pump source for tunable picosecond and subpicosecond lasers are given.
