We review the state of the art in developing passively Q-switched and mode-locked 2-micrometers lasers. Passive Q-switching was demonstrated using an InGaAs saturable absorber. An experiment to demonstrate passive mode locking using a diode-pumped 2-micrometers laser and similar semiconductor saturable absorbers is in progress.
