Systems, configurations and methods of using an ultrafast, self-starting, mode-locked laser are provided. The systems, devices and methods of using stable, self-starting mode-locked lasers, can be compact, use fewer optical elements and have energies sufficient for most micro-processing and micro-structuring applications. The large spectral bandwidth of ultra-short (femtosecond) laser pulses can be used in laser sensing applications, micro-matching, time-resolved experiments, where short-lived transient species can be observed in biological chemical reactions. Terahertz radiation can be generated using ultrashort pulses and used for imaging applications.
