Pulse shortening in a Nd:glass laser by gain reshaping and soliton formation

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We demonstrate that intracavity filtering and soliton formation in actively mode-locked lasers can lead to pulse shortening by as much as a factor of 30. Pulses as short as 310 fs have been generated from a Nd:glass laser that is mode locked only by an acousto-optic modulator.
