Abstract
Passive mode-locking of a cw lamp pumped Nd:YAG laser with the nonlinear mirror technique is reported. Light pulses with 2W of average power and pulse duration shorter than 100 ps at 1064 nm have been obtained. The nonlinear mirror consists of a 3.5 mm long KTP frequency doubling crystal and a dichroic mirror with high reflectivity for the second harmonic and lower reflectivity for the fundamental frequency. The mode-locking process is self-starting.
