Substantial improvement in passive laser mode locking has recently been demonstrated by employing two colliding pulses in an intracavity saturable absorber cell. Experiments to date have used either a double-pulse standing-wave cavity or a two-way ring laser cavity. The special properties of the antiresonant-ring laser cavity should provide another simple and useful way to obtain two colliding pulses inside a single-pulse and single-output standing-wave cavity.
