Monotonically chirped pulse evolution in an ultrashort pulse thulium-doped fiber laser
Type: Zeitschriftenaufsatz (reviewed)
We report on monotonically positively chirped pulse operation of a hybridly mode-locked thulium fiber laser. Dispersion management was realized with a small-core, high-NA fiber providing normal dispersion in the 2 µm wavelength region. The laser delivered pulses with 0.7 nJ energy at the 1927 nm center wavelength and sub-500-fs pulse duration after compression.
