Additive pulse compression modelocking using polarisation evolution.
In, Optical Fiber Communicatiions (OFC '91), San Diego, US,
Single-mode rare-earth-doped fibers are an ideal medium for the generation of ultra-short pulses. Long interaction lengths for nonlinear processes allow a very effective exploitation of nonlinear intra-cavity pulse-shaping mechanisms and allow to mode-lock the full glass laser bandwidth even in the presence of dominant inhomogeneous broadening. Stable femto-second pulse generation in fiber lasers generally requires the presence of both passive frequency- and amplitude modulation to be present in the cavity
