Abstract
We present a Q-switched microchip laser emitting 1064nm pulses as short as 100ps synchronized to a cavity dumped femtosecond laser emitting 800nm pulses as short as 80fs. The synchronization is achieved by presaturating the saturable absorber of the microchip laser with femtosecond pulses even though both lasers emit at different wavelengths. The mean timing jitter is 40ps and thus considerably shorter than the pulse duration of the microchip laser.
