Abstract

Picosecond pulses have been generated from a cw diode-laser source using cross-phase modulation from a cw-pumped mode-locked Nd:YAG laser operating at 1.06 μm. By tuning the diode laser in the region near 1.5 μm, the effect of group-velocity mismatch can be minimized, making efficient use of the fiber length and optimizing the cross-phase modulation spectral broadening.
