Abstract

We report a passively mode-locked fiber-based oscillator that has no internal dispersion-compensating gratings. This design, which we believe to be the first of its kind, produces 25nJ pulses at 80MHz with the pulses compressible to 150fs. The pulses appear to be self-similar and initial data imply that their energy is further scalable.
