Self-starting modelocked operation of a chromium-doped forsterite laser using saturable Bragg reflectors (SBRs) is demonstrated. A typical intensity autocorrelation and spectrum of the laser output transmitted through the SBR were seen. A train of chirped pulses with average output power of 210 mW corresponding to pulse energies of 2.3 nJ were obtained by replacing the flat high reflector by a 4.5% output coupler. Chirped picosecond pulses were also obtained when laser is operated without the prism pair.
