Abstract

We have found theoretically that the intracavity dispersion of a laser is independent of the pumping power and wavelength and that the resonant group-velocity dispersion vanishes. We have experimentally observed that the intracavity dispersion of an erbium-doped fiber laser was independent of the pumping power and wavelength within the measuring error, which agrees well with our theoretical predictions.
