Abstract

Using a two-stage optical-fiber pulse compressor together with an optical amplifier, we have compressed the 5.4-psec pulses from a synchronously pumped mode-locked dye laser to 16-fsec duration. The compressed pulses had peak powers of 80 kW and a repetition rate of 200 Hz and were tunable over the wavelength of the dye laser.
