Abstract
We report on application of semiconductor quantum well saturable absorber as a passive mode-locker in flashlamp pumped Nd:YAP laser. In passive regime of modulation, reproducible single trains containg about 10 pulses were generated with probability higher than 90 %. The single pulse duration was ~ 50 ps with a nearly Gaussian spatial profile. Energy ofthe whole train was 3 mJ. In active passive-regime using an additional acousto-optic modulator the probability of generation of mode-locked trains increased to 98 %.
