Noise-like pulses: stabilization, production, and application

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

Various aspects are analyzed, which are related to the generation of unusual laser pulses with stochastic internal structure known as noise-like pulses. A new mechanism of their stabilization is proposed on the basis of an analogy between a noise-like pulse and a drop of soliton liquid. The properties of noise-like pulses are considered. It is further noted that these pulses are more and more used in a number of applications (supercontinuum generation, industrial processing, medical treatment, etc.). The causes of low coherence of noise-like pulses are identified. A method of coherence degree measurement relying on the autocorrelation function of these pulses is discussed. The most promising configurations for generation of noise-like pulses are provided.
