Abstract

Analysis of dispersion produced by a λ/4 multilayer dielectric mirror as a function of its construction parameters is presented. The amount of dispersion can be estimated from a careful inspection of the measured reflectivity curve. In some cases, which seem to be of practical relevance, the value of dispersion is such as to prevent pulses shorter than ∼50 fsec from being produced in the mode-locked laser cavity.
