Abstract

In the last decade, vertical-external-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VECSELs) have become promising sources of ultrashort laser pulses. While the mode-locked operation has been strongly relying on costly semiconductor saturable-Absorber mirrors for many years, new techniques have been found for pulse formation. Mode-locking VECSELs are nowadays not only achievable by using a variety of saturable absorbers, but also by using a saturable-Absorber-free technique referred to as self-mode-locking (SML), which is to be highlighted here.
