In the following lecture I will describe theoretical and experimental studies of mode-locked solid-state lasers, specifically a Kerr-lens mode-locked titanium:sapphire laser. This laser is the major source for ultra-short optical pulses, which provides an extremely important tool to investigate ultra-fast processes in physics, chemistry and biology. Specifically, I will present novel cavity designs and configuration, which overcome many of the disadvantages and inherent limitations of standard designed Ti:sapphire optical cavities.
