Abstract

The main aim of this chapter is to give an account of the recent achievements in the development of semiconductor quantum dot saturable absorber mirrors (QD-SAMs) for picosecond and subpicosecond pulse generation in bulk solid-state lasers. This work benefited immensely from previous development of methods for self-assembled growth of uniform, controlled-size, and high-density InAs QD layers on GaAs substrates and the technologies, primarily destined for diode lasers [1].
