Abstract
This paper describes recent developments in modelocking techniques for ultrashort pulse generation in solid stat lasers. Studies in Ti:Al2O3 provide a model system for examining different modelocking approaches. Special emphasis is placed on the use of additive pulse modelocking for achieving passive modelocking using a fast saturable absorber-like mechanism. Different models of APM are described and its extensions to other solid state laser materials are discussed.
