A single-wall carbon nanotubes based saturable absorber wafer with absorption wavelength around 1047 nm was fabricated by electric Arc discharge method and employed in a diode end-pumped Nd:YLF laser as saturable absorber. Passively continuous wave mode-locking oscillation was achieved in the pump range form 6.7 to 8.0 W. The duration and repetition rate of the mode-locked pulses were 10 ps and 59 MHz, respectively. The average output power was 280 mW.
