Abstract
We describe a hybrid semiconductor saturable absorber mirror (SESAM) structure that has been developed as a passive mode-locking element for use with Cr:YAG, and other low gain laser systems. In addition to describing the device and its fabrication we report the results of initial mode-locking experiments carried out with a Cr:YAG laser. Mode-locked pulses as short as 500 fs have been generated.
