We present a passively mode-locked side-pumped Yb-doped double-clad fiber laser, emitting around 1.05 μm. Polarization additive-pulse mode-locking technique is used. Mode locking is self-starting and produces 670 fs pulses after compression with a grating pair inserted in the cavity. The energy per pulse is 24 nJ. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.

    In recent years, single-beam optical traps have been used to manipulate individual colloids and biological objects such as cells. We have implemented a rapidly scanning laser optical trap with rates as high as 1200 Hz where a single laser beam is used to trap multiple colloids simultaneously....
