Paper Abstract

We have investigated several techniques for generating ultrashort pulses from fiber lasers. The actively modelocked erbium-doped fiber laser has produced pulses as short as 4 psec at a wavelength of 1530 nm. We have also generated pulses as short as 160 fsec in a synchronously pumped fiber Raman soliton laser. The importance of group velocity dispersion in these laser systems and the advantages of each modelocking technique are reviewed.
