Abstract

An ultrafast thulium-doped fiber laser with stretched-pulse operation has been realized and investigated. The passively mode-locked oscillator emitted 119 fs pulses at a peak wavelength of 1912 nm. A normal-dispersion fiber with a high numerical aperture and small core was used for intracavity dispersion management and external compression. Numerical simulations were performed and are in good agreement with the experimental results.
