Paper Abstract

There have recently been significant advances in compact sources of ultrafast optical pulses. We review our work on developing fiber lasers that are modelocked using a saturable Bragg reflector. These lasers exhibit interesting polarization dynamics due to the lack of any explicit intracavity polarizers. The use of these lasers as a source in a wavelength division multiplexing transmitter is discussed.
