Abstract

The spectral and temporal characteristics of ≈10-fs pulses from a self-mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser were found to exhibit large deviations from the predictions of current theories of mode locking. A simple model that takes into account coherent coupling between the circulating pulse and the gain medium gives results in good agreement with experimental observations.
