Measurements on a monolithic extended cavity linear passively mode-locked laser in two configurations are presented. We investigated the theoretical prediction that placing the saturable absorber close to the output mirror instead of the high reflecting mirror leads to a reduction of amplitude and timing jitter. Our results seem to confirm there are indeed advantages. For both configurations mode-locking was observed. A beat tone with a 10 dB linewidth of 19 kHz was observed.
