Abstract

Blue-violet optical pulses of 140-fs duration and 60-W peak power were obtained from a dispersion-compensated GaInN mode-locked semiconductor laser diode using a nonlinear pulse compression technique. Wavelength-dependent group velocity dispersion expressed by third-order phase dispersion was applied to the optical pulses using a pulse compressor with a spatial light modulator. The obtained optical pulses had the shortest duration ever obtained for a mode-locked semiconductor laser diode using edge-emitting type devices.

(b) GVD needed to obtain Fourier transform-limited pulses of the corresponding spectral components shown in (a) (red filled circles), GVD due to the nonlinear pulse compressor (dashed-dotted trace), and phase dispersion corresponding to the GVD given by the nonlinear pulse compressor (dashed trace). The gray traces are a reproduction of the optical spectrum of the GaInN MLLD output.
