Abstract.  Semiconductor saturable absorber mirror (SESAM) mode locked Yb doped ultrafast lasers have been widely used in industrial applications. High laser stability against environment change and delivery process are required for industrial laser systems. A double Z-type ultrafast laser cavity was demonstrated experimentally and theoretically. Compared with the conventional Z-type cavity, this double Z-type cavity SESAM mode locked laser is less sensitive to misalignment and can tolerate more arm length changes while still staying cw mode locking.
