The deflector shows excellent loss modulation characteristics in a laser cavity under large signal operation. The mode locker is capable of generating very short optical pulses comparable to those obtained by passive mode locking. In experiments, an LiTaO/sub 3/ double-prism deflector is used as the mode locker for an Nd:glass laser. As a result, stable 6-ps pulses are obtained.<>
