Abstract

A dual-wavelength mode-locked semiconductor vertical-external-cavity-surface-emitting laser is demonstrated. A semiconductor saturable absorber mirror allows for simultaneous mode locking of pulses centered at two center wavelengths with variable frequency spacing. The difference-frequency control is achieved with an intracavity etalon. Changing the finesse of the etalon enables the adjustment of the pulse duration between 6 and 35 ps. The emitted two-color pulses are modulated by a beat frequency in the terahertz range. Self-starting mode-locking with 0.8-W average output power is demonstrated.
