Abstract

We report on monotonically positively chirped pulse operation of a hybridly mode-locked thulium fiber laser. Dispersion management was realized with a small-core, high-NA fiber providing normal dispersion in the 2 μm wavelength region. The laser delivered pulses with 0.7 nJ energy at the 1927 nm center wavelength and sub-500-fs pulse duration after compression.
