Nd:YVO<inf>4</inf> laser mode-locking at 1.34 &#x03BC;m by negative &#x03C7;<sup>(2)</sup>-lens formation in an intracavity BIBO crystal


Self-starting &#x03C7;<sup>(2)</sup>-lens mode-locking of a 1.34-&#x03BC;m Nd:YVO<inf>4</inf> laser using second harmonic generation in BiB<inf>3</inf>O<inf>6</inf> is demonstrated. Pulses as short as 3.7 ps and average powers reaching 1.3 W at 120 MHz are achieved.
