About the Authors
  • The papers in this comprehensive volume survey many recent innovations in ultrashort pulse generation, and review the state of the art in compact, modelocked laser systems, discussing both their operational principles and potential applications. The book first covers the theory of short optical pulse generation by modelocking. Then, contributors discuss modelocking techniques in different types of lasers: solid state; diode-pumped; fiber; surface emitting semiconductor lasers; external cavity semiconductor lasers; hybrid soliton pulse sources; and monolithic colliding pulse modelocked diode lasers. Presenting both theoretical and experimental aspects throughout, this book will be invaluable to anyone interested in short pulse laser systems, and particularly to researchers involved in high speed communications or the investigation of ultrafast phenomena.

    • Comprehensive review of an important field
    • Contains an introductory chapter on general theoretical concepts

    Reviews & endorsements

    "It is a particularly valuable addition to the literature since it addresses the discipline from both theoretical and practical modeling slants. Researchers, engineers, graduate and post-graduate students involved in high-speed communications or the investigation of ultrafast phenomena will find that this book presents a worthwhile review of the state of the art in modelocked laser systems." M.F. Mahmood, Optics & Photonics News

    "...each chapter is clearly and authoritatively written....The level of presentation is such that the book should be accessible to readers new to the field as well as established workers, and as this book represents the only collection of recent work in the areas covered currently available, it will undoubtedly be of value to many graduate students, researchers, and engineers." Martin Guy, Optical Engineering
