Abstract:

We present an integrated pulse source at 1064 nm and discuss design, fabrication and measurement results of the 3.5 mm long ridge-waveguide distributed Bragg reflector laser. The optical pulses with a peak power of 0.9 W, a temporal duration of 12.4 ps and a repetition frequency of 13 GHz are generated by passive mode-locking and are well suited for seeding master oscillator power amplifier systems for efficient green light generation with nonlinear frequency doubling in single pass configuration.
