Abstract

Optical pulses from gain-switched diode lasers were compressed using a grating-pair compressor containing an internal telescope. Original pulses of 20–30 psec were compressed to 5–7 psec, with the largest compression factor ∼5. Diode-laser pulse compression is well modeled by transmission of Gaussian pulses with excess bandwidth through a dispersive system.
