Abstract : This report describes the first optically pumped mode-locked PbS(1-x)Se(x) semiconductor lasers with an external cavity with the following specifications: 1. Observed lasing as high as to 150K, 2. Operated CW mode-locked as low as temperature of 8K, 3. Maximum output average power was 1 mW at 4.1 micro m and 0.6 mw at 4.8 micro m, 4. Wavelength span from 4 micro m - 5 micro m possible, Keywords: Tunable infrared semiconductor lasers, Lead sulfides, Selenides.
