Paper Abstract

We describe in detail the mechanism of 20-fold pulse compression in a synchronously pumped optical parametric oscillator. Nonlinear compression of these soliton-like pulses arises from pump depletion by the leading front of the compressed pulse and is limited by the round-trip cavity losses.
