Paper Abstract

The present work presents the study of an ultrashort pulse high quality laser source. This source is based on Gain Switching diode lasers and pulse compression schemes. Gain switching is one of the most interesting methods used to obtain short pulses from diode laser. This technique is easy to implement, cheap and does not require any specific fabrication. It also offers repetition rate tunability. Pulse compression is also studied as a means of shortening and improving the shape and quality of the pulses obtained from Gain Switching sources. Several compression techniques are evaluated. Linear pulse compression phenomenon is studied, as well as compression devices based on nonlinear optical pulse propagation. A comparative study of these compressors is performed in order to develop a monolithic source based on InP semiconductor technology.
