2-GHz passive harmonically mode-locked Yb-doped double-clad fiber laser

Article

Abstract

We report passive harmonic mode locking of a high-power Yb-doped double-clad fiber laser. 680-fs, 48-pJ pulses are emitted at the repetition rate of 2.13 GHz, while the free spectral range of the cavity is 23.4 MHz. Results indicate a supermode suppression of more than 25 dB.
