Abstract

We report the coherent spectral broadening of the output of a mode-locked VECSEL emitting 455 fs pulses at 1007 nm in the normal-dispersion regime. Subsequent compression of the fiber outputs using a transmission grating compressor produced 1.56 GHz trains of 150 fs pulses at 270 mW average power or 220 fs pulses at 520 mW average power. The system approaches the performance needed for a pump for coherent supercontinuum generation.

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 Schematic of the mode-locked VECSEL. The ratio of the mode areas on the gain sample and the SESAM was 2:1 and total cavity length of 96 mm resulted in a repetition rate of 1.56 GHz.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 FROG spectrogram (a) of the laser output, extracted temporal (b) and spectral (c) characteristics indicating a FWHM pulse duration of 455 fs and a FWHM bandwidth of 3.4 nm centered at 1007 nm. (d) RF spectrum of the laser output demonstrating stable mode-locking with a fundamental repetition rate of 1.56 GHz.
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 Schematic of the spectral broadening and pulse compression set-up. Pulses output by the mode-locked VECSEL were broadened in one of two pieces of PCF. The compressor was based around two 1000 line/mm transmission gratings and was optimized by varying the spacing between the gratings. The compressor throughput was 80%.

Fig. 5 Measured (a) and retrieved (b) FROG spectrograms, and extracted spectral (c) and temporal (d) characteristics of the 650 mW output from the University of Bath fiber. Blue curves are parabolic fits to the phase profiles in both spectral and temporal domains.

Fig. 6 FROG spectrogram, and extracted spectral and temporal characteristics of the compressed output of the UoB fiber (a), (c) and (e), and the NKT fiber (b), (d) and (f). Compression of the output from the Bath fiber yielded 220 fs pulses at 520 mW average power, compared with 150 fs at 270 mW from the NKT fiber.
