Abstract
We describe a compact Kerr lens modelocked Ti:Sapphire laser operating at 700nm and 800nm using Gires-Tournois interferometric mirrors & broadband negative dispersive mirrors for dispersion compensation. Average powers of more than 1W have been achieved with a pulse lengths of <100 femtoseconds using 5W of pump light.
