Abstract

We have pumped a fiber Raman laser with a continuous-wave mode-locked Nd:YAG laser operating at 1319 nm and generated pulses as short as 160 fsec by using soliton pulse shaping in the fiber. We have also constructed a completely integrated oscillator loop by using a fiber-optic coupler and fusion splicing.
