The saturation and recovery characteristics of a GaSb/AlSb MQW Fabry-Perot mirrors are reported. These nonlinear mirrors were found to have a fast recovery and favorable saturation performance suited for application as modelocking elements in high-repetition rate, short pulse solid state lasers operating at 1.55 μm. For the reduction of recovery time, the GaSb/AlSb system does not require extra ion implantation or low temperature growth procedures that can degrade sample quality.
