Abstract

The influence of the group-velocity mismatch between the fundamental and the second harmonic in the frequency-doubling nonlinear mirror is investigated theoretically. The nonstationary analysis provides an estimation for the maximum pulse-shortening capabilities of the device when it is used as a passive mode locker. The pulse-shape deformation is also investigated.
