Abstract

Using an SF6 glass plate as the intracavity Kerr medium and a double-prism pair for dispersion compensation, we developed a femtosecond transform-limited passively mode-locked dye laser. Self-starting mode locking is achieved with a dilute intracavity TCVEBI saturable-absorber jet. Within a 50% power drop the tuning range is 577–606 nm. Pulse characteristics of the laser agree with theoretical predictions based on the Ginzburg–Landau equation.
