New fiber laser architecture with transform-limited nonlinear spectral compression

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We numerically demonstrate a new fiber laser architecture supporting spectral compression of negatively chirped pulses in passive normally dispersive fiber. Such a process is beneficial for improving the energy efficiency of the cavity as it prevents narrow spectral filtering from being highly dissipative. The proposed laser design provides an elegant way of generating transform-limited picosecond pulses.
