Abstract
Cr3+:LiSrAlF6, Cr3+:LiSr0.8Ca0.2AlF6, and Cr3+:LiCaAlF6 have been successfully mode-locked to produce a stable train of 90 fs pulses at a repetition frequency of 140 MHz. The ultrashort pulses were initiated by gently rocking the output coupler and the mode-locking was self-sustained for hours after the output coupler had remained stationary. The spectral bandwidth of the pulses was 10 nm.
