Abstract

As far as we know this is the first report on picosecond green-light generation from an actively mode-locked diode-pumped self-doubling neodymium yttrium aluminum borate (NYAB) laser. The pulse width is approximately 100 ps and is limited by imperfect antireflection coating and the intracavity doubling effect. The green average output power of this laser for mode-locked operation was more than 12 times higher than that for the continuous waveNYABlaser. The polarization state of the laser can be switched from ordinary to extraordinary rays by displacement of the pump spot. The polarization ratio can be better than 200 without any intracavity polarization element.
