Abstract

We describe an ultrashort-pulse laser that, under specific operating conditions, balances the mechanisms of conventional passive mode locking and solitonlike pulse shaping in a single resonator to generate optical pulses that are to our knowledge the shortest yet emitted directly from a laser, 27 fsec.
