Abstract

The effect of third-order dispersion on the width of mode-locked pulses is investigated analytically and numerically. The pulse width increases monotonically with increasing third-order dispersion as a consequence of the symmetric chirp introduced by it. The chirp broadens the bandwidth and lowers the gain. Computer simulations show the appearance of a resonant sideband that also taxes the gain. Reducing the filter bandwidth partially suppresses the sideband and narrows the pulse.
