Numerical analysis of fast saturable absorber mode-locked Yb(3+)-doped solid state lasers is reported. The analysis includes a special case in which the spectral bandwidth of the short pulse is larger than the fluorescence bandwidth of the gain material. The relationship between the available shortest pulse duration and modulation depth for a standard bulk… CONTINUE READING
