Recent work in other laboratories has demonstrated that improved passive mode-locking can be obtained in resonator configurations in which two mode-locked pulses coming from opposite directions collide in a thin saturable cell,1 The improvement is partly due to the fact that the pulse saturation effects are effectively doubled. Grating effects2 may also play a significant role in the pulse compression process.
