Abstract

Erbium and ytterbium fiber lasers were firmly synchronized by nonlinear interaction in active media placed in the same cavity. A two-color femtosecond–picosecond pulse train at largely separate wavelengths of 1.55 and 1.04 µm was generated. Optimizing the laser cavity to enhance the cross-phase modulation in the gain materials has yielded a large mismatch of 20 µm between the two laser cavities.
