    Pulses as short as 2.3 ps have been generated by passive mode locking of a lamp-pumped Nd:YLF laser with a microdot mirror mode locker for Kerr-lens mode-locking (KLM) saturable absorber action and a compact Gires-Tournois interferometer for dispersion compensation. KLM was initiated with an acousto-optic modulator. Average output powers of 800 mW have been achieved. This result demonstrates the potential use of KLM for generating near-bandwidth-limited pulses from high-power lamp-pumped sources
