Generation of 5-fs pulses and octave-spanning spectra directly from a Ti:sapphire laser.
Spectra extending from 600 to 1200 nm have been generated from a Kerr-lens mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser producing 5-fs pulses. Specially designed double-chirped mirror pairs provide broadbandExpand

Ionization of noble gases with pulses directly from a laser oscillator.
A Ti:sapphire oscillator with an extended cavity generates pulses with 0.5 microJ energy at a repetition rate of 6 MHz and pulse durations of 50 fs. Tight focusing creates peak intensities exceedingExpand

Control of Q-switched mode locking by active feedback
Summary form only given. Since the early days of passive mode-locking additional undesired Q-switching is a major concern. Especially in the case of fiber and solid-state lasers with long upper-stateExpand

All-solid-state Cr:forsterite laser generating 14-fs pulses at 1.3 μm
We report the generation of 14-fs pulses at 1.3 μm with 80-mW average power at 100-MHz repetition rate by an all-solid-state Kerr-lens mode-locked Cr:forsterite laser. The laser spectrum coversExpand
