ABSTRACT
We have developed a mode-locked, diode pumped, neodymium-doped yttrium lithium fluoride (Nd:YLF) laser operating at 1.053 μm. The laser produces pulses of 18 ps duration at an average power level of 12 mW. When Q switched the duration of the pulse train was 140 ns, giving rise to peak powers of 15 kW.
