ABSTRACT
We report the first optically pumped mode-locked Al0.3Ga0.7As/GaAs multiple quantum well (MQW) laser in external cavity. The MQW structure with a total thickness of 5 μm was grown by molecular beam epitaxy on a Si-doped GaAs substrate and was synchronously pumped by a mode-locked Kr+ laser (82 MHz) at 647.1 nm. The MQW laser emitted 10 ps pulses at 8085 Å with peak powers as high as 6 W. The demonstrated MQW laser combines desirable properties of quantum wells with advantages of an external cavity, such as specific band-gap design with high beam quality and the possibility of intracavity tailoring of the laser beam.
