Abstract

We report on a cavity-dumped self-mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser operating on a 10-fs time scale. Pulses with energies exceeding 60 nJ and peak powers of 5 MW were generated at repetition rates as high as 200 kHz. On injection of the output of this laser into a fiber, a white-light continuum is produced that shows great potential for compression.
