Title: All quantum dot mode-locked semiconductor disk laser emitting at 655 nm

We present a semiconductor disk laser mode-locked by a semiconductor saturable absorber mirror (SESAM) with emission in the red spectral range. Both the gain and the absorber structure are fabricated by metal-organic vapor-phase epitaxy in an anti-resonant design using quantum dots as active material. A v-shaped cavity is used to tightly focus onto the SESAM, producing pulses with a duration of about 1 ps at a repetition rate of 852 MHz.
