Paper Abstract

Although fiber delivery of 25 fs laser pulses were recently shown possible reported results are restricted to 1 to 2 m single-mode optical fiber due to the high amount of group delay dispersion, guiding losses or fiber nonlinearities. On the other hand conceivable applications of ultrashort laser pulses in inhospitable environment, their use for security or even telecommunication purposes require optical pulses to be delivered over much longer fiber distances. Here we demonstrate 160 fs laser pulses from a Ti:Sapphire laser travelling over 45 m optical fiber. In theory even 130 fs can be sent through 50 m single-mode fiber with the herein described technique.
