Abstract
The Kerr-lens mode-locked (KLM) laser with a novel five- mirror cavity is theoretically examined by applying the ABCD-matrix formalism for a Gaussian beam. Since the optimum configuration of the five-mirror cavity is obtainable at the middle of confined cavity condition, one can easily achieve the KLM alignment and stable mode-locking operation. Influence of the self-focus appearing in the five-mirror cavity configuration upon a semiconductor saturable-absorber mirror is also analyzed.
