Description/Abstract

A Nd3+-doped fiber laser has been FM modelocked by two means: 20-ps pulses were obtained with a bulk phase modulator. Detuning the modulation frequency induced FM operation which broadened the laser bandwidth to 57 GHz. An integrated fiber phase modulator produced 80-ps pulses. Low intracavity losses led to submilliwatt thresholds and slope efficiencies in excess of 45%
