Additive pulse compression modelocking using polarisation evolution

Ober, M.H., Hofer, M., Haberl, F., Fermann, M.E., Schmidt, A.J. and Minelly, J.D. (1991) Additive pulse compression modelocking using polarisation evolution At Optical Fiber Communicatiions (OFC '91), United States.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


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
