Fermann, M.E., Harter, D., Minelly, J.D. and Vienne, G.G. (1996) Cladding-pumped passively mode-locked fiber laser generating femtosecond and picosecond pulses Optics Letters, 21, (13), pp. 967-969.

Record type: Article


Passively mode-locked fiber lasers cladding pumped by broad-area diode-laser arrays are described. With a dispersion-compensated erbium-ytterbium fiber oscillator, 200-fs pulses with pulse energies up to 100 pJ are generated at a wavelength of 1560µm. In a highly dispersive cavity, pulse widths of 3 ps with pulse energies up to 1 nJ are obtained. A saturable absorber is used for pulse startup, whereas nonlinear polarization evolution is exploited for steady-state pulse shaping An environmentally stable design is ensured by use of a compensation scheme for linear polarization drifts in the cavity.
