Description/Abstract

Fibre circuits offer great potential for the development of convenient, compact, diode-pumpable ultrashort pulse suitable for a broad range of applications spanning from telecommunications, all-optical processing down to their use as basic laboratory tools. The principle advantages of the fibre environment for short pulse generation lie: (a) in the mode-confinement which results in low (~10 mW) laser thresholds, high efficiencies and ready access to fibre non-linearities (which are suitable for passive mode-locking and pulse processing), and (b) in the simple integratability of fibre devices which facilitate the construction of complex but compact functional circuits for the generation of specific optical pulse output.
