Diode-pumped soliton and non-soliton mode-locked Yb:(Gd1-xYx) 2SiO5 (x=0.5) lasers have been demonstrated together for the first time to the author's knowledge. For the non-soliton mode locking, output power could achieve ~1.2 W, and pulse width was about 20ps. For the soliton mode-locked operation, the pulse width was 1.4ps at the wavelength of 1056nm and 375fs at the wavelength of 1042nm, with a pair of SF10 prisms as the negative dispersion elements. The repetition rate was 48 MHz. The critical pulse energy in the soliton-mode locked operation against the Q-switched mode locking was much lower than the value in non-soliton mode-locked operation.
