Abstract

Stable pulses of less than 150 fsec are generated directly from a tunable cw passively mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser, through a balance of self-phase modulation in the Ti:sapphire rod and negative group-velocity dispersion produced by a prism pair. After external fiber compression, 50-fsec pulses are obtained at approximately 750 nm.
