Abstract

Compact mirror-dispersion-controlled femtosecond oscillators are far superior to their prismatic counterparts if high repetition rate is required. In preliminary experiments, this paper generated sub-20-fs pulses at a repetition rate of 500 MHz, which are substantially shorter than pulses previously demonstrated at comparable repetition rates. The short pulse duration (or the related low-cavity high-order dispersion) is crucial for the scalability of the system to higher repetition rates. From these promising results, it is shown that subpicosecond pulse generation by passive mode-locking should be feasible at repetition rates up to 5-10 GHz in the near future.
