Abstract

We report the first successful generation of picosecond pulses from a cw neodymium phosphate glass laser by active modelocking. Neodymium phosphate glass combines the advantages of Nd:YAG (cw operation) and Nd:glass (broader bandwidth). Uur experiment opens the door to cw subpicosecond pulse trains from neodymium.
