Abstract

We report the first actively mode-locked diode-laser fiber-amplifier system with wide wavelength tuning around 1.06 /spl mu/m. Tuning is achieved over 45 nm via a feedback grating. Pulses with a repetition rate of 1.4 GHz and a pulse duration of 30 ps are generated with up to 9.5 W of average output power.
